Matthew grew up in North East Ohio, and developed an interest in design and
building at a young age. His grandmother suggested he should become an
architect, and her suggestion stuck.

He moved to Detroit, where he received his Masters of Architecture from the
University of Detroit Mercy. There, he paired his love of architecture and
craft with fabrication and industrial design. He designed and built
architectural concrete elements and furniture, and spent time as a metal
fabricator. Working with a design-build firm, he crafted sustainable
residential projects.

Matthew relocated to Seattle in 2012, where he designed education and civic
projects. Joining the team at Malboeuf Bowie brings a return to the
residential design-build projects that he loves.

In his free time, he enjoys the discipline of making, through mediums of
wood, metal, and concrete.
