Matt is known for his devotion to his clients, incredible attention to detail, and the ability to execute the most complex projects. His collaborative leadership approach to design and management involves working closely with the entire project team to achieve successful results.
His work as a project manager with Valerio Dewalt Train Associates includes a range of commercial, residential, institutional, and mixed-use buildings and interiors.

Matt is a leading voice for the future of the profession and believes that architects have a responsibility to be leaders and to promote the value of design in communities.
In addition, he has contributed mightily to the life of AIA Chicago and the architecture community.
