Matt Cubbler is a servant leader who has spent his entire life serving and helping others. Matt’s passion and purpose was born out of his relationship with his older brother, Andy, who was autistic and stuttered. Tragically, Andy died in a car accident in 1989. Since his death, Matt served 4 years active duty in the US Army in the intelligence field including a deployment to the Middle East during the Persian Gulf War. For the last 26 years, Matt has served in various law enforcement capacities - patrol, SWAT and as a member of the elite counter-terrorism agency known as US Federal Air Marshal Service. Matt is also an entrepreneur, inventor, author, youth mentor, inspirational speaker and the host of the Two Dates and a Dash Podcast. Matt is married to his beautiful wife, Lauren and they have two children - Rebecca and Andrew.
My goat is one that will be with me forever - the loss of my brother. After 13 years of severe depression, in 2002 God showed me His grace and allowed me to begin to heal. Since then, I have been tirelessly working on multiple platforms in order to share Andy’s story and inspire others to live a life of selfless service worthy of remembrance.
