Description:

Matt took his first EMT class in high school and spent his college 
years guiding in the Sangre De Cristo mountains during the summers and
volunteering with the local Sheriff's SAR team during the year. After
spending a year working at his favorite toy store (REI), he fell back
into guiding and teaching the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts
in the bay area for a few years.

After doing his WEMT last year he spent one last summer in the
mountains before beginning work on an ambulance full time. In his free
time he bikes, climbs, runs, walks, stretches, and generally tries to
get outside and into the mountains whenever possible.
