A native of Corpus Christi, Matt has called Laredo home since 2001. Matt is the owner of Gibson Design, a full-service advertising agency in Laredo, and a member of the Executive Committee of Washington’s Birthday Celebration Association. Matt has been involved with Casa Yoga from the very beginning as the creator of the original Casa Yoga logo and designer, developer, and webmaster of the Casa Yoga website from day one.
In 2016, Matt was over 40, overweight, pre-diabetic and fighting high blood pressure. At that point he made a conscious decision to get fit, making Casa Yoga & Orangetheory Fitness part of his daily life. After losing more than 30 pounds, Matt is no longer pre-diabetic, his blood pressure is in check, and he is healthier than he ever has been. Driven and strong, Matt is ready to help others realize their fitness goals, one CY Ryde at a time.
"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney
