While growing up in Downers Grove, Illinois, Matt made regular visits to Chicago noting his appreciation of the city's diverse urban landscape. He has resided in the Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods since 1998, while being a property owner and landlord for most of that time. Matt lives with his wife, Laura, and nine-year old son August, in their one hundred-year-old Bucktown home, which they renovated in a contemporary style that is comfortable, while keeping its original Chicago charm.
Matt also sings in the church choir and is lead vocalist for a local garage band. When he leaves the city limits it is usually to pursue his passions: camping, skiing and other outdoor activities and travel throughout the country and abroad.
