Matthew has a Bachelors of Architecture from the University of Arizona in Tucson where he learned to design in harmony with the oftentimes extreme variables of the high desert Southwest. While at University, Matthew studied abroad at the Universidad La Salle in Mexico City to explore his Mother's Latin culture and the complexities of the world's most populous metropolis.

His client's projects span from dream residences in Saint Moritz, Del Mar, and Hawaii, to serving the good of a neighborhood in need with the Kroc Salvation Army Community Center in San Diego, California.
Matthew was an integral part in completing the flagship Salvation Army Kroc Community Center in San Diego and has continued to serve the Salvation Army as a Kona Corps Advisory Board member and architecture consultant to the Hilo Corps.
