After graduating from Heritage in 1997, he went on to earn a B.A. in Spanish and a B.S. in Journalism at the University of Colorado in Boulder and graduated Cum Laude. Upon graduation from CU, Matt moved to Europe where he taught English as a second language and became fluent in German. He returned to the U.S. and continued teaching in Denver, Boston, and New York City.
In 2010, Matt returned to the University of Colorado and earned his J.D.
