He grew up and worked hard to become an Eagle Scout...
(Matt with his three sisters, Brenda, Alicia, and Sarah)

He even used to like mullets...

He is a great husband and date...





He is a great employee...




He is a great Dad...




He loves the Broncos, Red Sox, and the Utes!



He is a good dancer, …
