Matthew grew up in the West Michigan area and loves the unique mix of being a short drive to both a beautiful lake shore and a thriving city. Matthew and his wife live in Jenison with their 2 year old daughter. They attend Crossroads Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan and are involved in several ministries there including Abba’s Answer, which assists families who have adopted or are fostering children.
Matthew enjoys watching almost any sport, but especially college football and March Madness. In the summer, he enjoys playing golf on the many great area courses Michigan has to offer, as well as slowly chipping away at completing his goal of playing golf in all 50 states. Additionally, he organizes a adult slow-pitch softball team each year, allowing him and many friends to make fools of themselves out on the diamond.
Matthew graduated Magnum Cum Laude from Grand Valley State University’s finance department.
Matthew attained the Certified Financial Planner designation, widely considered to be the top standard designation for the financial planning profession. A CFP® designation signifies the advanced level of knowledge, experience, and understanding attained in financial planning for both individuals and small businesses.
Matthew started Straight Path Wealth Management in 2011 in order to offer clients the objective, conflict-free advice they needed.
