Personal History Matt was born in New York City, New York to two workaholic Emergency Room doctors. He was a very rambunctious child, often getting dirty and into trouble at school and at home. He was a daredevil, always climbing tall trees and buildings much to the chagrin of his babysitters. As he grew older, Matt continued his adventurer ways, often getting into hijinx with his friends such as racing cars and partying during the weekends. He was a very popular guy in high school, having a large number of friends and girlfriends. He wasn't the most invested in his studies,

As he neared the end of his time in high school, Matt was considering different types of careers that were dangerous and full of adventure. A recruiter from the Federation Civilian Police Department spoke at his high school, piquing Matt's interest in working in a field where he would be able to face different and often dangerous situations on a daily basis. Even with his lackluster grades and slightly aloof personality, Matt made it into the Federation Police Academy at the age of 18.

During his time there, he was ousted immediately for being cocky and brash by the instructors. He was on their shit-list and became the butt of their torments and punishments, constantly testing him to see if he would crack at any point. The embarrassing lectures seemed to work; they forced him to understand that he couldn't get through life with just his good looks and strong physical stature. He had to learn to use his natural street smarts and charismatic ability to accomplish his work and be taken seriously in the department.

Upon graduation, Matt spent his career going from one starbase to another every two or three years. He enjoyed the day to day patrol work, being able to run around and capture wanted criminals and be a protector. However, he had a strong fear of commitment and felt the need to not be settled down in any one place.

At the age of 27, Matt transferred to Starbase Command, enjoying the large base and officers he worked with. After two years, he met and began dating a new officer, MacKenzie Sullivan, and became inseparable from her. The longer they dated, the more Matt began freaking out about the potential life-long commitment (even though MacKenzie never pressured him into anything since she had the same aloof type of personality). his impulsive nature led him to put in for a base transfer without telling her until the day he left. MacKenzie was understandably upset and broke up with Matt. He had truly been in love with the woman and immediately regretted his freak out.

After a year of being at another base, Matt made the decision to come back to Obsidian Command. He was miserable at his new home, missed his fellow officers, and secretly hoped he would be able to reconcile with MacKenize. She couldn't forgive him for his heartbreak but continued to still remain a close friend of his, enjoying working with him and hanging out.

When Matt was 32, after showing more and more initiative and leadership amongst the officers, Matt was promoted to Sergeant then to Lieutenant after his coworker Archie was moved over to investigations. The promotions had been much to his surprise and amazement as he had mostly just gotten by during his time on the base. However, he had realized that there was more to life than just running around and getting laid.

Matt and MacKenzie's relationship had rekindled after Matt realized he couldn't be without her after helping her get through her miscarriage and subsequent breakup with her ex-boyfriend. After a near death experience, Matt proposed to MacKenzie, deciding he couldn't be without her any longer.
