Matt has gained first-hand knowledge of South Plains severe weather as a trained storm spotter. In June 2005 he observed several tornadoes
across the eastern FOX 34 viewing area. He's a true weather nerd, following the weather, its technology, research and anything else connected both while at "work" and away.

He serves as a board member of the National Weather Service's local chapter of the Storm Ready program. He volunteers for the Lubbock Area United Way as a loaned executive, helping local businesses run their annual campaign.

fans will understand the cat's name.
