Matt has had a passion for swimming since he was a child. He has been a Marine Corps swim instructor and American red Cross life guard since 2015. But he has held a teaching position within the Marine Corps since 2009. He has taught countless Marines and Marine Corps recruits to swim. He is the father of two young children. If you take swim lessons with Matt, you are getting an experienced instructor who's number one concern is always safety. He is professional, curtious, and will have you swimming in no time.

Matthew has the insightful knowledge necessary to help my son. I did not expect it to go as well as it did. I look forward to the next lesson.
