Being a kid with his kids is Matthew’s great joy – surrendering to the spirit of play, experiment and provocation. On occasion, taking time for solitary reflection on a long quad-punishing bike ride. Led by a studious appetite, Matthew always enjoys discovering the art of food, sharing an artisan coffee or a micro brew beverage with friends and strangers.
He hopes to be considered (and remembered as) a purveyor of happiness.
