  • Bachelor’s degree in sport management, Washington State University 

Originally from Dayton, Matt returned to the area after 20 years in Southern California and a successful career in sports. He worked 17 years in a variety of roles with the Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club. He also had previous roles with the Los Angeles Angels, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes and Long Beach Ice Dogs. He joined Baker Boyer in November 2022, initially as Asset Management Associate. 

With a desire to go above and beyond for clients, Matt seeks to provide a comfortable and convenient service experience in an otherwise hectic world. He collaborates with clients to understand their financial goals, map out strategies to achieve them, and deliver peace of mind to know their needs are met. 

He looks forward to becoming involved in public service in Walla Walla. Meanwhile, he enjoys time with his wife and daughter, golfing, poker, home renovations, and visiting new restaurants, breweries and wineries.
