During his sophomore year, Matt formed a band with his friends Simon Lewis, Eric Hillchurch, and Kirk Duplesse. Outside of their band activities, he also often hung out and played video games and Dungeons & Dragons with them. Matt also has a girlfriend named Kate.
During Eric's poetry reading at Java Jones, Matt was playing the djembes behind him, apparently looking stoned. At one point, Simon told the group that he had been Turned into a vampire, and they all took it well. When Jordan Kyle auditioned to become their band's new lead singer, Matt agreed that they needed a new one, jokingly calling out Kirk for being a bad singer.
