Executive Aide to the CEO
Matthew is currently living with his wife in Durham, NC. He moved to North Carolina in March 2013 to join Percona after he graduated with a Bachelors in Business from University of Florida in late 2012. Throughout most of his life, his father served as a pilot in the military, which meant that the whole family moved from one city and state to another every couple of years. Matthew believes that this constant change is what sparked his original excitement for new ideas and new businesses and the uncertain world of change they live in.
He now has nearly 10 years of experience in entrepreneurial adventures, including an advertising marketplace for cars. While still in high school where one challenge he faced was not yet being old enough to own his company. Over the years Matthew's experience has spanned many industries, ranging from food service, to industrial design, to advertising, to automotive and technology. Tying all of these experiences together is an innate and unshakable fascination with business and what makes them successful.
His professional interests are in finance, operations management, and virtually everything tech. In his spare time he trades on the stock market, roasts his own coffee, and is a voracious reader.
