Nestled deep in the heart of Dixie, Matt has been doing all things Battletech since sometime around 1990, with a short break around the turn of the century that he refers to as "College and Getting Married". Matt got his start after he spotted a copy of Battletech, 2nd Edition in a Destin, FL bookstore during a family vacation, and forked over the obligatory $20 despite his father's wishes to the contrary. Now with over two decades in the game, he has branched out into refining his miniature painting skills, and annoying other CSO artists for hints and tips. Matt has a BBA in management from Mississippi State and a MBA from Indiana. When not pulling out mapsheets and dice or a paintbrush, you can often find him in Starkville, MS, cheering on the original Bulldogs.
