Matt was born in Evansville Indiana and grew up in Newburgh Indiana.
Matt graduated from Castle High School in 2005 and went to Ivy Tech for a short stint after that.
During his senior year of high school, he attended a trades and Industry program through North High School where he was fortunate enough to have been offered a job by QTR plastics as a production operator.
He has spent his entire career since then in the plastics industry, working his way up through multiple departments such as maintenance, warehouse, quality lab, research and development and custom color formulations while having various leadership and management roles throughout these departments. These opportunities and the people he has met through the industry have provided him with a pretty diverse skill set and have shaped him into who he is today.
