My name is Matt. I enjoy college football and spending time with my family. I am a competitive amateur tennis player. I love to help and educate my clients.

My Story

Matt is originally from Fairfax County Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech in 1995. Matt worked for a small accounting firm in the greater Washington DC area while earning his Virginia CPA in November of 1999. Matt moved to Florida in 2000 and was hired by the international accounting firm Grant Thornton.


From 2003 to 2005 Matt furthered his education at the University of Florida earning his MBA in real estate and finance. After that Matt was hired by Fishkind & Associates, a prestigious economic consulting firm, in 2005 in Orlando. There Matt modeled cash flows for various large Florida developers. Matt also did financial modeling for clients in civil litigation disputes.


From 2010 to 2022 Matt has worked in various capacities as an employee in land analysis, accounting, financial analysis, as well as, working as a contractor in income taxes. Along the way Matt picked up his Master of Taxation in 2012 at the University of Central Florida and transferred his Virginia CPA to Florida in 2011.


Matt enjoys continuous learning in his free time including tax law, financial statement analysis and non-fiction books. 




Early in his career, Matt performed bookkeeping services for many clients in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Since that time, almost twenty five years ago, Matt has gained wide business experience.


Real Estate Modeling


Matt has experience modeling some of the largest communities in Florida during his time at Fishkind & Associates. Matt maintained developer cash flow models for Developments of Regional Impacts from 2005 until 2008. Clients included Core Communities in Saint Lucie County and Babcock Ranch in Charlotte and Lee counties. The Babcock Ranch community was valued at over $20 billion nominal dollars at full build out.


Matt again applied those skills from 2014 to 2018 in his capacity as an analyst for Minto and Mattamy communities. This modeling allowed Matt to give advice to the capital allocation committee on whether the land acquisition price was reasonable. 


Matt also has experience modeling the fiscal (local county or city) impacts of new development. New construction is appraised above the average of an existing local government’s stock of construction and, therefore, local governments encourage new development. Matt has experience communicating these fiscal impacts to the county board of commissioners.




Matt worked from 2000 to 2002 in the tax department of the Tampa office of the international accounting firm of Grant Thornton. At Grant Thornton Matt gained valuable tax compliance experience with ordinary corporations, S corporations, partnerships, and wealthy individuals.


Matt worked under a Kovel Letter for a powerful New York City law firm from 2010 to 2014 assisting in the defense of a taxpayer under criminal investigation by the Southern District of New York and Department of Justice (DOJ) for tax evasion and failure to report a foreign bank account. Matt prepared the client’s tax return in compliance with Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC), capital gains, and allocation of prior years’ tax and related interest under §1291 rules.
