A hard-working country cop with traditional values, straight-talking Matt doesn't suffer fools gladly. His stubborn streak is a point of friction in his relationships with wife Lauren and eldest son Mason.
Matt runs a tight ship, and sometimes rules the family home a little like it's a police station, believing that a firm-but-fair approach will be best for his kids in the long run. But he also has a soft side, and there's nothing he wouldn't do for his family.
Matt tends to see the world in black and white, with little in between, but he's a lot of fun to be around, and prides himself on being the life and soul of a neighbourhood get-together!
