Known for his seamless, sublimely crafted environments, in whose broad range of styles—minimalist here, maximalist there— share a rarefied attention to detail and flow. His passion for interior design and remodeling was cultivated by his mother (Interior Designer) and accentuated by his extensive international travel, which has allowed him to see and experience first-hand some of the world's most prestigious living environments.
Acknowledged at a national level, Matthew was awarded 30 under 30 by the National Kitchen & Bath Association in 2013.
