Matt's dad got him hooked on cars at a very young age. As far back as he can remember, his dad always had two or three car magazine subscriptions delivered to his house. Even before Matt could read, he would study the magazines almost as if he could. Growing up in Southern California, he was fortunate to also be exposed to a rich car culture that included everything from classic cars to supercars. From 2004 2012, Matt owned and operated a couple of automotive forums which eventually lead him down a path toward journalism. He still lives in Southern California with his wife and 3 children. His youngest seems to have been bitten by the car bug and Matt is excited to be able to share his obsession with him.
