Matt brings 6 years of construction experience to the McDonald York team. He is a graduate of Wake Tech Community College where he received an Associate Degree in Applied Science for Construction Management Technology. He also received a Certificate of Basic Construction Estimating and a Certificate for Construction Safety Management. His favorite part of working in the construction industry is being a part of the process where people of different trades come together to create a final product for clients that will be used and enjoyed for decades to come. Matt moved to Raleigh in 2010 but is originally from Crown Point, Indiana. His favorite part about Crown Point is the downtown area called "The Square." In the center of Crown Point is a historical courthouse that dates back to the 1800's and is surrounded by small shops, good restaurants, and local bars. Matt believes that success is finding your passion in life and pursuing it relentlessly. "In order to live a happy and fulfilling life, I think it's important to recognize what you most enjoy and make a career our of it. As long as you find and recognize that passion, it will never be difficult to continually learn and work hard towards becoming the best at it. As a result, success will naturally follow."
