Matthew is a proven industry and community leader in his profession.  Matthew’s gift and passion for design was initially fostered by his parents and his great grandmother who paid for early childhood art lessons because she saw a talent and a drive to design.

Upon completion of high school and a childhood in the middle of Indiana, Matthew followed his passion to become an NCAA springboard and platform diver for Western Kentucky University.  It was there, while studying at WKU where Matthew learned the initial discipline of architecture and drafting.  Upon graduation, Matthew attended the school of Modern Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology founded by famed Architect Mies Van Der Rohe.  Upon completion of his graduate studies, Matthew enhanced his skills while working under the guidance of Helmut Jahn in Chicago where Matthew was exposed to projects throughout the world.

In 1997, Matthew relocated to Naples, Florida.  From there, Matthew became a licenses architect and worked on many iconic structures in downtown Naples.  In 2009, being a product of the recession, Matthew launched his own firm and branded MHK.
