Matt was born and raised in Somerset West, South Africa. He attended Brevard Community College and Southeastern University in Lakeland Florida as a college golf athlete and graduated with a BSc in Finance, magna cum laude. Matt is also a CFA Charterholder.
He is a dedicated family man with reasonable DIY skills and lives with his beautiful wife Megan and precious daughter Paige; soon to be joined by Bennett James. They currently reside in Glen Arbour, Hammonds Plains, NS. He enjoys golf, fishing, and building memories with family.
Having been raised in South Africa, a third world country, he was affected by the number of homeless children in the town he lived in and the unfathomable circumstances in which a significant portion of the population helplessly lived and the significant abuse they were exposed to.
As such he has a well-founded perspective on poverty and has been involved in numerous homeless, children’s, and support ministries since his teens. He believes his purpose in life is to help woman and children in need; particularly to protect them. His life is built on the firm foundation of his faith which he brings to all facets of his life; family, friends, and business.
