Growing up on the Gulf Coast, Matthew’s affinity for the open sea developed at the Houston Yacht Club. It was there that he spent the summers racing sailboats. After school, Matthew found employment in the petro-chemical business. Uninspired with this line of work, he returned to his roots and the water.

His journey in yachting began on the deck in 2001. He quickly rose up the ranks and accepted his first position as master in 2004. Operating as the captain and engineer early in his career cultivated his understanding of the ship’s mechanical systems. Matthew is a seasoned captain with more than 75,000 sea miles and three Atlantic crossings under his belt.

He also added new-build experience to his resume while overseeing the completion of a 45m Benetti. The combination of his technical savvy, regulatory understanding, and insight into the role a management company plays has furnished Matthew with a well-rounded grasp of the yachting industry, as he carefully listens to the client’s needs and draws on his experience.

Now at Denison Yachting's Palm Beach office, Matthew’s goal is to exceed his clients' expectations.
