Matt’s Personal Journey
This is the one that fueled his passion to help and guide others to deeper levels of connection, fulfillment, and success. It comes from turning his own darkest moments into gold through awareness, self-love, faith, and a persistent daily practice. He was in an emotional and spiritual tailspin for months, sparked by his experience of becoming a disabled veteran, and he almost went over the cliff. That is when he finally asked for help from deep within.. It was in that moment that he experienced an overnight healing and started working daily towards his personal recovery. As the years went by, Matt continued deepening his practice, studying for years at a Buddhist Temple, going to Holistic College, studying under some famous teachers, leading Meditation groups, and exploring all modalities to heal his mind, body, and spirit. His journey of asking, seeking, and putting into practice the learning he received is what inspired him to bring what he found to others so that they, too, can find the same peace, fulfillment, and joy for themselves. His lessons are both powerful and practical, making them something you can instill in your own life right away.

He is a leader and teacher who uses his own life experiences to teach and motivate daily. He’s a resourceful and insightful business and spiritual life coach, whose core belief is that the first step is always, as Matt says in his own words:
“Practicing deep awareness, becoming still, and peaceful so we can see, feel, and understand who we really are through watching our thoughts, feelings, and sensations. From this place of acceptance, compassion, and inspiration, we can move towards our joy, healing, and success in all areas of our lives.”

He is a native New Yorker, is happily married to his wife, Tara, and they are blessed with a beautiful son, Patrick. Matt’s belief is that despite what pain, difficulties, and mountains that we face in life, we truly CAN triumph and move mountains, and that this inner practice is what guides us to tap deep into our potential bring it out and to begin to live with a greater depth, emotional intelligence and experiencing a true peace of mind.
“If we are grateful, calm, cool, connected, and we’re keeping the inner life relaxed as we learn how to meditate and then we add in love, a real continuous outward and inner conscious love practice, we plant that into the fertile ground of a clear, relaxed mind with a grateful, open heart, just that combination, those ingredients equal such a profound goodness, beauty, success, happiness, and healing. It really is that simple.”
