I knew Matt as well and he did lie to me and make me feel crazy for questioning him. he was a gifted musician and could have gone on to wonderful things in his line of work, if his heart was in the right place. what a low down dirty liar.... I hope he gets what he deserves in the Pokey.....

Wow. I have known this guy for YEARS and never would have known. We dated and I always got a weird, lie-sensing vibe from him which is why I stopped seeing him. Wonder if he was married at the time.

A friend and I both dated this guy at different times. He was not attentive to her or her advances very much, but always smothered me with too much attention. Someone above said, "30 calls a day and dropping by when I hadn't responded". That sums up our relationship quite well. He said one day that he knew he wanted to marry me, but wanted me to be ready. I have always been an independent person and he always told me that that was intimidating and "hard to handle". He started proposing on our first date so I told him it was too much, that I wasn't ready for any of that. A year later we reconnected and started seeing each other again. I always felt that he was lying to me about something, holding things back. It started a fight or two. So an attorney friend did a background check. I just stopped taking his phone calls. That was about the time that he was arrested (though I didn't know about any of that until oh about a half hour ago when I decided to google for old time's sake). So my mind? Officially blown.

Matt had a wife, while dating and lying to countless other women, promising them all the world, presenting himself like he was a saint, a smart and nice man, a real amazing caring man who works with troubled youth, musically gifted & talented, etc etc etc. The lengths that he will go to to deceive people are mind blowing. He is sick and perverted, an excellent liar and manipulator. Will go to any length to get what he wants and to make you feel crazy for questioning him. I bet there are many people that are surprised by what has happened and have known him for years without thinking he could do anything like that...It took a long time to put all the pieces in place to realize just who he is and what he is capable of, but they got put together, and the big picture is the most disturbing thing I have ever seen or been through in my entire life. He has hurt MANY (I know of 6 personally)other women prior to actually being caught for something he could go to jail for. and should be locked up and or committed for the remainder of his sick sad life. I'll be praying for his family, but I think his soul is beyond help. PS: I made a call back in March...let a staff member at Third Way know what he has done to women, how demented I believed him to be, and that I didn't think he should be working with children anymore. I wish they had listened when I told the truth about this insane man.
HI, my name is tarra, i happen to be the one who got this man officially locked up! he is a monster and he tried to use his attitude and his charm to get me to fall for all of the things he had done to many other girls and thank god i was strong enough to see right through it i was in a very strong relationship at the time. i was a resident at third way and i was there for the things that had happen to me in my past, things i have thankfully healed from. and then this man, who was nice, mad me laugh, seemed like a nice staff at the time, sent me emails with pictures i cant describe publicly, but lets just say coming from a man with a wife, and a career around vulnerable girls, it was the most surprising thing to not only me but everyone who knew this man! the police were called that night and the pics were printed and it made another girl speak out and since many more! he didn't get at all the charges he should have! i hope he lives a sad life!

Ive always wondered who you were. Im very very sorry to hear about what happened.

I feel the need for a bit or catharsis at the moment so forgive me for the rambling on a thread that Im sure not many people read.
I met Matt when he first started working at Third Way. I was 16 at the time so this would have been back in 2004, before he was married and before Lowery Campus existed. I used my sexuality to manipulate him, to get my way while living in the hellish existence that is group home living. When I was 18 in 2006 things escalated to sexting, dirty pics and the like (we didnt date because thats just stupid) and when his then fiance (now ex wife) found out we ended things.(she was well aware of who I was since she herself worked with me as a client when I first came to the program) A therapist of mine at the time found out as well and was outraged at the breach of ethics and notified Thirdway. They did nothing. I am now almost 25 he is out of prison and living in Denver again (after briefly living in MO with his parents) and is for lack of a better word obsessed with me. He calls, he texts, he wrote me in prison. Wants a sexual relationship even tho he still sees me as a 16 year old. I feel responsible for the things he did to other girls years after we ended things. Im sure Im not to blame but I cnt help but wonder if it was me who brought this out in him. My heart goes out to those who have been hurt. I hope you are able to go on with life and remember that one asshole isn't worth throwing everything away for.

It wasn't you. He is a predator. He wrote to me while he was in prison also.. Told me how sorry he was and that he was getting help, and that he couldn't wait to prove what a changed man he was. Don't believe his lies. He is and always will be a manipulator. And as a registered sex offender he has to check in with the police any time he moves. I make sure to keep an occasional eye on the registered sex offenders list for my own safety and that of my children.

I blocked his numbers from my phone. Im too old to play victim for a man who was supposed to take care of me in my youth. Its sick of him to even try.

Wow.... just Wow..... Well This is not a huge shocker. Matt where do I start....
Met this guy in 2005. we talked for years.... Dated for a while on and off. Found one of his girlfriends on myspace and let her know we were dating the same man. Who was not dating him......He would web cam or ask for web cam late at night while working at the tean mom home. There were times he just asked to watch me sleep on web cam. He Bought a house in Thorton in 2008. Glad to see he got what he got. Still makes me laugh to hear him tell me he wrote the i do song for me by jude lol....

Nice Girl we broke up in March of 2008, just after I left him and his other girlfriend of almost two years left him and he moved on to you. He deleted all his social media sites when I caught him. Said he was being cyber stalked by to many people. He told me over and over again how he loved me and wanted to marry me and I was the only one he ever wanted, blah blah blah. He had nothing to say when he was busted not even a sorry! The least he could of done. He really devastated me.He had a voice that haunts me still when I hear certain songs he sang. I just hope no other women fall for his lies.

Sorry Laticia but it's all true. Like I said. We dated for 18 months.. He slept at my house.. All while he had a wife and was hooking up with 3rd way girls. I have the love notes he would leave on may car, pictures with me at work functions, and parties we went to. When I found out he had a wife.. By seeing a pic of them together at a third way party.. He lied and said the photographer thought they were married but it was just a staff member. I have the letters from prison stating how he was getting a divorce so we
Could finally be together.. It's all true.
