Matt grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, surrounded by all the different Chicago architecture types. He graduated with advanced degrees in engineering and finance from Washington University (St. Louis), where he played soccer. Then, he spent nearly 20 years in infrastructure finance, working on public-private partnerships and other civil works projects worldwide. A growing family and entrepreneurial mindset shifted his focus from corporate work to residential remodeling and construction. As a Class A builder licensed in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, he has enjoyed building and renovating significant additions and whole homes.
Matt targets building truly transformational projects for his clients, embraces attention to detail and is always looking to change how people feel about residential construction projects. As a frame-to-finish builder, he often jumps in to help his carpenters with specific construction details. He is excited about leveraging Alair’s resources to better the experiences for his clients and to better the lives of his team. He usually drops by job sites and constantly works to form lasting relationships with market partners. When not checking in on job sites, Matt can be found with his kids playing sports or music, or tinkering with a new gadget or tool in his personal shop.
