Matt discovered his passion for disruptive technology while in college where he wrote his first app. In less than a year the software was sold to SPX (NYSE). Matt dropped out of school and began his entrepreneurial journey. He has been featured in dozens of publications, including: Inc., Forbes, TechCrunch, Entrepreneur, PYMNTS, Digital Transactions Magazine and the Orange County Business Journal.
In the years after college Matt built Cloud 9, an accounting application provider and hosting company, it was acquired by HostPapa, a global leader in webhosting. He also built voiceovers.com as a part-time side project, built it to 45,000 members across the globe and sold it within 18 months to the private equity firm, Tiny Capital.
With three successful exits under his belt, he is now on his fourth and most ambitious venture; Chargezoom, an embedded finance platform for payment processors and financial institutions.
On a personal level, Matt is a Stage 4 M1c cancer survivor, undergoing a dozen surgeries, a medically induced coma and a year of chemotherapy at 27. Upon his diagnosis (10% survival rate), he dropped everything, wrote his bucket list and secretly completed it over the next 4 months. It wasn’t until after he conquered all he had set out to, that he shared the news of his illness with those around him. Over the next 13 months defeated cancer and hasn’t looked back.
Matt currently resides in Laguna Beach.
