About Matthew

I have over 10 years in the management consulting, operations, business development, strategy and running a business. I am keen to work with a partner(s) on a venture. Something in the consulting domain likely makes sense given my background. One idea I have is to merge IT with performance and consulting to provide useful "performance analytics" that can help drive and shape leadership/management focus for creating organizational breakthroughs. I, however, have a wide range of business and personal interests and am open to any and all ideas.

Most important to me is working with the right people (team) to make real and lasting change and deliver value. I have been living working in Asia for the past 6 years and looking forward to returning to the Washington, DC area.
