In 1988, Matt’s father opened Woodside Auto & Tire, where Matt worked as a shop hand up until he graduated from Woodside High School. He then moved on to get his degree in Small Business Management from Cal State Hayward. He has since accomplished the certification as Master Technician and Smog Technician, and continues his education to stay current with all of the changes within the automobile industry. He has an uncanny ability to diagnose any vehicle!
