D.O.B. February 16, 1985 in Quezon City, Philippines.
Matt started street dancing at the age of 7, in the slums of Manila, when he first began with party dance craze moves such as the running man, MC hammers “typewriter” and some New Jack Swing with the neighbourhood kids. Instantly a dance crew within the neighbourhood was formed. Matt would create and mimic dance routines to perform at school and anywhere within the neighbourhood. Eventually he migrated to Toronto, Canada in October of 1996. With the new city and setting, Matt took 3 years to get back into the groove, as he was introduced to the art of Breakdance during his middle school/high school years. From here he jumped from crew to crew on a journey to find his true identity and eventually finding his way back into the choreography world where he found comfort. Compiling many years of street dance and experience from competitions, battles, shows, Matt continues his journey to perfect his craft, to share and have fun.
