Originally from Wilmington, NC, but also a past resident of Elizabethton, TN, Matt considers both of those places as home as he spent time growing up in both towns. With a passion for learning, he has studied a variety of topics to include computer programming and creative writing while in school. His greatest accomplishment to date is graduating Summa Cum Laude from UNC-Greensboro with a degree in Philosophy, and he's also had success through recent approval to publish his first Android & iOS apps (that is awesome!).
In his free time, Matt likes having a few drinks & talking philosophy with anyone who’s in earshot. Spending time outdoors with family & friends, grilling, hiking, & camping are also some of his favorite activities. Additionally, Matt and his wife, Brandy, also enjoy checking out Charlotte’s beautiful art scene to include concerts by the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, plays at the Belk and Knight theaters, visits to the Mint Museum, and various Indie venues.
When I asked him about his favorite movie of all time, he says that it is O Brother Where Art Thou. He also shared with me his favorite quote:
We can all agree that actions speak louder than words, and if we want to appear a certain way, then we need to align ourselves and walk in that manner. This quote reminded me of growing up and having Career Day at school--I'm sure many of you can relate. We would dress the role of the professional and explain why we wanted to take on that role; yet as I got older, I was also told that it's not enough to look to the role, but you've got to fit it professionally, and this quote seems to speak on this matter. Currently, Matt and Brandy are living in Charlotte with their two dogs Brisco and Honey, and we're very happy to welcome them to the TimeTap family.
