A San Diego native, Matthew attended elementary school in Mission Hills, at Francis Parker and Grant Elementary, and received his high school education at The Bishop’s School in La Jolla. He was recruited to play baseball at Tulane University in New Orleans, where he received his B.A. in Media and Business.
Upon graduation, Matthew accepted a position at Young and Rubicam (an international advertising agency), where he worked on the Mattel, Sony, and Callaway Golf accounts. His work with Callaway Golf caught the eye of Wieden+Kennedy, an advertising agency in Portland, and he was hired to manage Nike’s Golf, Football, Baseball, and Hockey accounts.
Matthew joined the Hernholm Group in 2009. In 2011, they were recruited by Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty and immediately became the company's #1 producer. Their family team consistently ranks among the Top 25 agents in San Diego, and has been the #1 producer in 92103 for 24 years.
Matthew and his wife currently reside in Point Loma, and enjoy being members of the San Diego Yacht Club.
