Matt graduated from the University of Delaware in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Film. He began his professional career in the Media Industry, starting as a Broadcast Negotiator for a top Advertising Firm in Manhattan. He then tackled the retail world, as a Media Executive at Macy’s in Herald Square. His last thirteen years were spent with the largest Corporate Trade and Barter company on the globe, Active International. Twenty years in the Media Industry taught Matt that we are all, ultimately, in the “Relationship Business”.

His diverse background within the business community gives him unique and helpful insights into the needs of individuals and businesses alike. Now partnered with FHFG, Matt has grown his bandwidth of knowledge in the industry to help and support his clients.
