Since commencing his craft as an apprentice working on architecturally designed houses in Australia's southwest, Matt has seen his fair share of different work sites.
He was involved with the refurbishment of a fishing camp on a remote island off the northwest coast, has been a foreman on new builds in the middle of a national forest and done his time on Pilbara mine sites working as a formwork carpenter.
Matt has even taken the lead role on an architecturally spec’d installation for the The Melbourne International Flower and Garden show and he doesn't mind mentioning the time he spent renovating a Super Yacht in the south of France either!
Through his travels Matt has racked up over eight years experience in the carpentry game all the while running his own successfull sole trader carpentry gang working closely with clients turning their houses into homes and dreams to reality.
He prides himself on strong communication skills and his relationships with clients and colleagues alike are a testament to this.
