Matthew hails from Purcellville, Virginia and is a 2013 alumnus of James Madison University.  He has a passion for service and, before returning to work for JMU in 2018, he served the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician (Bomb Tech) community at the EOD Warrior Foundation.  After two years with the EOD community, Matthew took a position with Freedom Alliance, a military organization dedicated to providing college scholarships to Gold Star children.  Now, he is privileged to serve alumni, parents, and JMU supporters as they find their philanthropic passions at James Madison University.

When he is not at work, you will find Matthew casting flies to hungry trout (or any fish willing to eat), skiing down a mountain or spending time with his girlfriend, Courtney Peckham (’13, ‘14M).
