    Matt is an onion; peel back the hip, stylish veneer and he's a renaissance man who meditates regularly, and focuses on healthy living both in mind and body. He's always reading or listening to something. Books topping his list currently are: Three Essays on Universal Law: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma, Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins. He believes that life is about a journey and the best things in life aren't things. And the two things he's most passionate about are his daughters Makenzie and Sydney.

    Matt enjoys working with the Evolution Hospitality team because he thrives in an entrepreneurial environment and is constantly amazed by the energy, passion and talent by which he is surrounded. He also believes you have to be able to laugh at yourself and not take yourself too seriously.
