Matthew was born and raised in the Portland Metro area and is a true Oregon native. He grew up competing in multiple sports most of his life, including at the collegiate level. When he discovered CrossFit in 2017, he realized that it was more than just a sport. CrossFit not only prepares him for his continued athletic endeavors but also provides him with a great community in which to do so. Being someone who identifies as being in recovery from substance abuse, Matthew enjoys giving back to his community and started a free CrossFit class on Friday evenings at CrossFit Immense for those in recovery from drugs and/or alcohol.
