Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago Matthew is no novice to the grit and hustle of life in a big city. With a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Illinois, he pursued his career in design, and worked on high-level commercial projects such as the Chicago Botanical Garden and Chicago Riverwalk. As he honed his design and construction skills, Matthew moved over to the luxury real estate sector. Privy to each phase of the design development process, he became inspired by the installation and real-time innovation that takes place on the construction-site. Outside of the design studio Matthew experienced first-hand the inevitable challenges and complexities that take place on the construction site, and what it takes to successfully translate a design vision into a newly built reality for his clients.
Four years ago, Matthew moved out of the Midwest and became the Eastern Regional Sales Manager for a California based site-furnishing company. Since his time in New York, Matthew has enjoyed working with several talented design firms, high-level developers, and reputable contractors. His efforts generated a new pipeline of business, on-going design partnerships, and a scalable portfolio of high-profile commercial projects throughout the city. Some highlights include the Ernst & Young HQ, the new Google campus in Hudson Yards, and the redevelopment of 2 Washington Plaza in Lower Manhattan. His prior success in sales has motivated Matthew to become an interior furnishing and space planning expert.
