Matt has worked almost every level available in Utah. Since joining WIHOA, Matt has worked hard to become an official that others can count on.

Matt enjoys officiating because it provides him a way to stay involved in the sport he loves.

Many of Matts favorite people are fellow officials and he loves spending time after games talking story with fellow officials.
