Matt grew up in Northern New Jersey playing baseball. During high school, he made a transition from baseball player to lacrosse player. Being that baseball was his first love, and he is an undying New York Yankee fan, he has proclaimed himself a baseball nerd even though he no longer plays.
After graduating from Pascack Valley High School, he studied Biology at the University of Maryland. He continued his studies honing in on physical therapy at Columbia University Medical Center’s doctoral program, where he specialized in orthopedics.
Matt has always been intrigued by the human body’s ability to heal, especially the ankles, knees and lower back. As a PT, he relishes in his ability to help the body heal through therapy, while establishing a personal connection with patients.
His interest in pain science has him working towards receiving a certification as a Therapeutic Pain Specialist. This piqued interest gives Matt the means and confidence to treat patients with chronic pain.
Matt has not only been a PT, but he was a patient in high school. While playing a pick-up football game, he fell on outstretched hands and fractured both of his arms. This lead to a few tough months of recovery, but he credits the physical therapy treatment and the team behind it that got him through it all.
Matt considers himself a budding connoisseur of whiskies —single-malt scotches and bourbons— as well as craft beer. When he has time, he enjoys slow cook barbecuing ribs, brisket and pulled pork in his smoker. His favorite pizza is from Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. As a baseball nerd, one of Matt’s goals is to make a visit to each of the MLB stadiums.
