Matt was born and raised in Bakersfield, which people there called "The Little Texas of California". His first job was working on ranches and feedlots starting at ten years old and going through graduation from high school. After graduating at the top of his class, he received a scholarship to Arizona State University for academics and track, but instead, he chose to join the United States Air Force. His parents were less than thrilled, but Matt wanted the challenge. He was trained as a combat medic in the pararescue squad, and this had an important impact on how Matt sees himself and those around him that is still in effect today. Matt is a team player, period.
After leaving the Air Force as a staff sergeant, Matt wanted another challenge. He moved to LA and worked as in the LA County Paramedic Corp for a decade in some of toughest neighborhoods, working alongside some great professionals and seeing both the best and worst in people. On the side, Matt started working in a commercial cabinet shop, and he found a lot of satisfaction in the precision required and the end result of a job complete.
Family called Matt to Texas, and he accepted a position as a production manager in a high end residential and commercial millwork company in Austin. Matt's ability to lead was immediately realized, and for the next five years, he coordinated the completion of countless projects across Austin, many downtown and at such notable sites such as the Frost Building and the Driskill Hotel. When his company was hired by Trinity Constructors to complete a difficult project, Matt's ability to lead others and overcome challenging obstacles was immediately recognized, and he was recruited to work for Trinity and lead the charge on some of our most demanding projects.
Matt is a senior leader, both on the jobsite and to his friends and family around him. He takes time to mentor those who need advice, feed those who are hungry, and support those who need help.
