When Matthew sets out to do something, he will be sure it gets done. He is known by his peers as a brilliant and capable leader, as well as a relentless force in business. In his mere 22 years on earth, Matthew has accomplished similar feats, and maybe even more than the professional peers 2-3 times his age.
Matthew knew he loved being a leader at a young age and knew he was born for it. His earliest accomplishment was back in 2003 when he was awarded on the Tony Danza Show for his lobbying efforts in Albany New York to protect animal rights. He then moved on to partner with Andrew Adams, and the two created the mobile apps for The Jones Beach Air Show; the largest event on Long Island.
While still in high school, Matthew and Andrew launched the Long Island Summer Festival. With a goal in mind of raising enough money to fund their young media brand, the pair blew expectations out of the water and successfully orchestrated Long Island’s only Hot Air Balloon Festival.
From these events, Matthew realized his passion for media and advertising. He built upon this passion to launch the innovative omnichannel media company that would bring value to all kinds of businesses in all locations. With tons of hard work and dedication through creating a multi-stage plan and more, BOLD Media was born.
While Matthew was studying at Stony Brook University, Matthew and Andrew closed the first venture capital round and launched the mass media arm of BOLD Media called BOLD Broadcasting. The duo became the youngest owners of commercial mass media in the US when they successfully acquired 104.7 WELJ from Cumulus Media.
Matthew is beyond proud of his accomplishments and is so excited to see where BOLD Media takes off to. If it is said to be done, it will be done!
