Matthew developed a love for pickleball in 2015 when he met his now wife and mother-in-law at a rec-center in Tennessee. Since then, it has been an every day thought.
Matthew's favorite thing about pickleball is all of the friendships and relationships he could have never imagined being formed through pickleball.
During college, while obtaining his Exercise Science degree, Matthew fell in love with the art of instruction. Because of this, Matthew combined his two passions together and began learning how to teach pickleball in the spring of 2019.
Matthew now lives in Temple, Texas with his wife and two dogs but is blessed to be coaching all over Central Texas, spreading the joy of pickleball.
