After multiple deployments commanding troops in combat, a career on Wall Street, and living life in the “fast lane” driving some of the worlds rarest cars all over the world, Matt’s life came to a head when he and his wife were in a car accident, killing her and leaving him to raise his two children.
He found himself at a point he had never been. This wasn’t kill or be killed, or making another million, this was life staring him in the face saying “now what”?
Matt’s story of starting from the bottom, (growing up in a trailer and going away to military college at 16) to becoming a United States Ranger and Green Beret, to ringing the bell on Wall Street 4 times, to being dragged through the torment of being left a single dad all before he was 35 is as inspirational as it is tragic.
His of journey of finding self, and his commitment to continue forward despite hardship, and going from kill or be killed and the rat race of corporate America to learning to value and champion the drive for legacy, value creation, Transparency, and impact is beyond motivational.
Matt’s focused lectures and interactive Q&As stimulate those finding themselves stuck in places where they feel as if they’ve plateaued. And helps start-ups, entrepreneurs, and non-profit professionals discover their true potential to institute change and influence their impact at even the lowest levels.
Combat and Wall Street proven special Ops leader weathered by tragedy and saved by a second chance.
