Although still young, Matt’s career in municipal finance has spanned many years and many different disciplines.
He’s currently a managing director of Neighborly, a financial technology platform that aims to bring the municipal finance market into the 21st century digital realm.
Matt also founded Court Street Group, a research and consulting firm which builds bridges between the worlds of Washington, Wall Street and financial technology. This followed an eight-year stint at Municipal Market Analytics, an independent research firm which provides strategic analysis and commentary on historical and quantitative conditions of the U.S. municipal market. In this role, Matt led the firm's Washington, D.C. relationships concerning municipal finance issues, wrote the firm's market commentary and a weekly report for municipal issuers, and created and maintained MMA's Municipal Benchmarks.
Matt started his career in muni finance as a reporter for The Bond Buyer, where he covered the municipal marketplace. He studied industrial and labor relations at Cornell University and political science and history at Georgetown University.
Matt was born in Dakar, Senegal in Africa, and spent much of his childhood in Bolivia and Peru. In addition to English, he speaks Spanish and French.
