Matt was born in Riverside, CA. on September 27, 1988. He lived in Apple Valley, CA., until age 6. He resided in Redlands until until high school, when he moved to Murrieta and graduated from Murrieta Valley High School in 2007. He moved back to Redlands after high school. He graduated from the Art Institute of California with a BA in Media Art Animation in 2011. He was a current resident of Yucaipa. Inspite of all his hospitalizations and treatments, Matt graduated from both high school and college on time.
Matt was involved in the church as a child and teenager. He made several mission trips, including one to Mexico and another to the Philippines. The day before he passed away, he restated his faith in the Lord.
