Job Title: Coordinator of Youth Ministry

Working at Solano: I previously worked at Solano for 8 years as the Youth Minister, but now I am back after doing ministry in the Diocese of San Diego for 6 years.  

Favorite part about job: Helping students understand just how much God loves them and encouraging them to live their lives from that understanding.

About Matt’s family: I have been married to my wife Amy for 18 years and we have 7 rad kids.

Hometown: I grew up in Vista CA. It's exactly as exciting as it sounds.

Favorite part of being Catholic: We get to receive Jesus in the Eucharist!!!  Also, I love how diverse the Church is. It truly has something for everybody.

Hobbies: I love music (listening, playing, & making).  In my "free time" (from the guy with 7 kids), I enjoy playing my guitar, doing little projects around the house, and hanging out with my family and friends.

Favorite food: Chicken Adobo and Lumpia (Filipino).

Favorite song: All Along The Watchtower (as performed by the Dave Matthews Band).

Fun fact: I released an album in 2001 called "Letting go" and was signed to a major catholic label. (I know I know, try contain your excitement).

Dream for Solano: My dream is that Solano would continue to build up disciples that go out into the community and bring even more people into the family of God.
