In his early 20’s Matthew lived in Beverly Hills where he spent time collecting Hollywood memorabilia with Warder Harrison. This sparked a lifelong passion for purchasing and selling jewelry, coins, and all varieties of antiques. He was an avid historian, and was especially interested in the World War II era.
Matthew was an exceptional abstract artist, with his favorite artist being Salvadore Dali. Although The Rolling Stones were without a doubt his favorite band, he had a love for all music. Matthew spent numerous years in the Louisville hospitality industry at Kunz’s Restaurant and The Bristol Bar & Grille.
