Matt began in the construction industry sweeping and cleaning houses that his father built and has since made a 12 year career out of it. His favorite thing about the industry is seeing a project all the way through from start to finish. "It's a great feeling on the last day when you walk away from a project and there is nothing left to do. You can see the finished product and reflect at what has been accomplished through all the hard work." In 2013, he worked with BHDP Architecture in the Wells Fargo building in downtown Raleigh. Working in a large building downtown presented many challenges but the project went smoothly according to Matt and the client was very happy with the end result. If he isn't at work he might be cheering on his alma mater, East Carolina University, where he earned his degree in Construction Management. Matt also enjoys spending time with family and friends, mountain biking, and homebrewing.
