Matt joined the NBC Montana weather team in July 2013 and fell in love with the Montana lifestyle.

Matt joined the NBC Montana weather team in July 2013 after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology from The Florida State University. This is his first professional position in the weather field and he is excited to begin his career at NBC Montana.

Matt became fascinated with weather while watching thunderstorms during the hot Florida afternoons. The 2004 hurricane season had serious impacts on the Sunshine State, including Matt's hometown of Ocala, FL. It was then that he began to consider meteorology as a career. During his time at FSU, Matt spent summers launching weather balloons in Oklahoma and interning at WHNT TV in Huntsville, Alabama where he decided to pursue a broadcasting career. While working at NBC Montana Matt has covered everything Montana weather has thrown at him: blizzards, rock slides, floods, severe thunderstorms, and extreme cold.

Matt is an avid sports fan and follows the New York Mets, New York Giants, and his alma mater's sports teams. He also enjoys outdoor pursuits such as backpacking.
