Matthew grew up in the suburbs of New York until attending Columbia University in Manhattan studying visual art and art history. He currently resides in the Bronx with his partner and two dogs, Lando & Hans. Since graduating from Columbia, he has worked in NYC as an artist and mixologist and found Effiji Breath in the summer of 2018.
Effiji Breath satisfied a curiosity and deepened the creativity he’s always had. Training as a facilitator in January 2019, Matt was introduced to Xing Yi and the Tai Chi form as supplements to Effiji Breathwork. This new modality of movement supports a lifelong interest in athletics, fitness, general health and wellness. He is currently holding regular classes in New York City and is excited to share the power of this work with greater New York and the world.
