Matt recently joined DCNC as our Trainer and Application Support Specialist. He has over 15 years of experience working in law firms and corporate legal departments and jokingly claims to have been “everything but an attorney!”

 Some of his favorite roles have included overseeing the opening of a Denver office for a national law firm, designing and implementing a custom legal document and matter management system at a large healthcare payer, and working as a consultant and information scientist for a small, startup software company based out of the United Kingdom.

Outside of work, Matt has a wide variety of interests, including meditation, playing with his two dogs, and reading. His number-one passion these days is cycling – especially road biking, and his favorite training and travel partner is his father. They frequently race each other around Denver’s many bike paths, and they recently enjoyed riding a multi-day cycling tour of Maine together. Matt has even built his own, custom-fit bicycle at a co-op maker space in Boston called the Artisan’s Asylum. This project involved brazing together a steel frame and learning to lace up his own wheels. He also has some experience as a welder and blacksmith, having spent a summer as an apprentice at a local metal-working studio here in Denver. He says that physical activity and working with his hands, no matter whether it is by chopping vegetables or plasma-cutting holes in sheet metal, helps him relax after staring at computer screens most of the week.

Matt is also proud to be a million-miler at the young age of 35. What’s a million-miler, you ask?  It’s someone, like Matt, who has traveled a combined total of at least one million miles by crawling, walking, running, biking, driving, sailing, and flying (he hates swimming!). To put that in perspective, it would take more than 150 round-trip flights from New York to San Fransisco or roughly two trips from Earth to the moon and back to reach one million. Born and raised in Denver, Matt has been traveling since his early childhood on family vacations. He has visited all 50 states in the US in addition to “something like” 15 foreign countries. His most recent journey was an extensive road trip with stops in Seattle, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, St. Louis, Boston, and New York City. His favorite part of North America is the Pacific Northwest, but, if he could retire anywhere in the world, it would have to be in Peru. He fell in love with South America last spring when he and his dad hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and spent time living in a treehouse on the Amazon river. He speaks three languages in addition to English, and he is currently trying to teach himself Quechua – an indigenous language spoken in the Andean mountains of Peru and Bolivia. Being a life-long learner is what makes teaching and training others so enjoyable for Matt, and he is always eager to share and gain knowledge with others.
