He looks forward to working with the 6 Points team and spreading the love of Jewish camping. His vision for 6 Points Sports is to merge the joy of sport with the rich tapestry of Jewish traditions and values, ensuring everyone in the community leaves camp with a profound sense of identity and purpose. 

Matt’s excited to get back to work at the 6 and see everyone in Asheville during summer! In his free time, you can find Matt cheering the Florida State Seminoles to victory, especially over the Gators and Hurricanes, and relaxing with a good view of the water, likely somewhere on the Jersey Shore.

Paul worked in his youth as a counselor and group leader in a sleep-away camp setting in the Northeast and had always wanted to get back to being part of that special place. At 6 Points he has found his “happy place” and relishes every day that he can interact with campers, and counselors, providing a safe, fun and inviting place for campers to enjoy themselves, form meaningful and lasting relationships and be the best versions of themselves. He can’t wait for the summer to come, because as he often says, “It is going to be a SMASH”.
