Business builder, chef, outdoors-men. Matt's journey to becoming a trusted advisor has been heavily influenced by a non-traditional career path. As a restless student, it was no surprise that Matt chose to start his first business by the age of twenty. He channeled his love of architecture into building a construction company that specialized in complex, architecturally historic renovation projects.

By 2007 Matt had seen it all and was no longer fulfilled in his business. Soon after brokering a sale with his partners, the stock market crashed and Matt became particularly disturbed by stories of fraud, deceit and dishonor in the financial services industry. He believed there had to be a better way to help people with their money. Matt moved to Los Angeles to begin his career as a financial advisor at a national brokerage firm where he met his partner, Stephen. They quickly realized they shared a vision to challenge the status quo and with their clients’ best interest in mind they launched 1080 Financial Group.

Matt has been recognized as a “Five Star Wealth Manager” by Los Angeles Magazine and is a member of the Financial Planning Association and several other community organizations for business professionals. He is married to his wife Nina, and together they enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with loved ones.
