 Delaware Hayes High School.  After high school he attended The
 Catholic University of America in Washington D.C, where he

 started his career in the banking industry and came to the
 conclusion he wanted to start his own company.  Matt started The
 Creative Consultants, where he was responsible for business and
 financial strategies for art galleries and design studios.  In 2007, he
 decided to pursue his MBA in Entrepreneurial Marketing to help with
 his ultimate career change and to develop and broaden his skills to
 transition out of the banking industry.
Being a client of Northwestern Mutual, Matt decided to talk to his Representative about a career with the organization.  He had always enjoyed finance and was always passionate about helping people.  Matt started his career with Northwestern Mutual in 2010 and has since realized how much of an impact he has made on his clients,compared to his experiences at the bank.  Another appealing aspect of this career is the autonomy of working with clients from an array of industries, such as technology entrepreneurs and creative industries, which are other passions of his.  Northwestern Mutual really gave him the platform to help families and other entrepreneurs, while giving him the freedom to build his own business.
