About Matty Jeff

Email: matty@wpor.com

I grew up in NJ, the beautiful Garden State. The one thing that really stands out from my youth, besides great family and friends, was my love of music. I started playing guitar when I was ten.

My radio career started when I attended Rutgers University and that journey has taken me through northwest NJ, to New Hampshire, and finally to Portland, Maine in 2007.
