Director of Digital Content and Marketing
Matt began playing poker when he was 7 years old, but didn't pick up Hold'em until 2003 when a friend's dad taught him 'proper poker'.
Shortly after, he won the very first $5+1 Sit & Go he played on Party Poker and was instantly hooked. Playing poker replaced getting a summer job until he graduated with dual business/accounting degrees from the University of Kansas in 2006.
After that, Matt decided to pursue poker professionally instead of attending grad school. In 2007 he moved to Helsinki, Finland where he started a poker office with Finnish poker greats MrsPaigow, LokoisBack, & Thai-Daddy; among others. While there he learned to appreciate Finnish culture and Swedish women.
After four and a half years of 6-10 tabling $1/2 and $2/4 NLH and logging ~1.5 million hands, Matt was fortunate enough to be offered a job with Rakeback.com.
Although he is currently the only member of the Rakeback.com Team to have won a live poker tournament on three separate continents, he prefers to focus on farming low-mid stakes cash games.
In the office, Matt is tenderly referred to at Nitt Narietta, Dr. Horse or Crazy Uncle Ron. Outside the office he can be found playing softball or ranting about politics.
