Matt has been a member of the USCVFD since 2017. Matt is happily married with two children. When he can take some time for himself he enjoys traveling to Europe and train surfing. Train surfing is the act of hitching a ride on the outside of a freight train. This practice has been done since the early days of horse-hauled rail cars. Although this practice is extremely dangerous, Matt enjoys the thrill of climbing up on a electric locomotive and feeling the wind in his hair. He claims that he will quit one day, but his wife fears his hobby will take his life. When at the USCVFD Matt enjoys pump training.
