Matt is an all-American, blue-eyed Texan charmer. Formerly a quarterback at the University of Texas, Matt signed to play football professionally, until an injury shifted his path. Today, the ambitious 28-year old is partner in the family energy business, Nordco Inc., and is the founder of Nordco Consulting. Matt also devotes his time to various charities, primarily his own -- The Leadership Foundation and Gala -- which helps underprivileged children develop character and strength through sports and educational programs.
When it comes to the ladies, Matt definitely plays the field, but isn't a player. He works hard to always be honest and up-front with his intentions. Though often seen with a different girl on his arm, Matt is intrigued by the possibilities of an old fling, Neill Sklyer, who moves back to the city. His best friend, Courtney Kerr, calls herself Matt's "gatekeeper" and definitely voices her disapproval of the women Matt surrounds himself with. Their relationship is very close, calling into questions if there is more than meets the eye; but both Matt and Courtney deny it, claiming that they are "just friends."
