Technical expertise and creative solutions: turning Ideas into reality

The magnificent landscapes of his native Wisconsin have given Matthew an enduring love of colors, flowers and Nature.

Following a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a degree in Medical Imaging, Matthew moved to the Pacific North West. Based out of Seattle, he joined General Electric, training scanning and medical imaging technicians across the continent. At G.E., Matthew acquired a high level of technical expertise and traveled extensively for his work.

At the dawn of the new Millennium, inspired by his travels and encounters, driven by a desire to explore new cultures, Matthew decided to change professions and embark on a new adventure. He left the U.S. and moved to Paris.

In the course of his professional exploration and experiences he crossed paths with Pierre-Alexandre. The two discovered a shared passion for set design and decoration. They joined forces, developed a business project and founded Metropolitan Design Paris, their own strategic event design, planning and production agency.

Matthew likes to describe himself as the agency's MacGyver. Trouble-shooter and problem-solver par excellence, his solutions are always qualitative. He handles a majority of MDP-Event's logistics and technical issues.

Whatever the situation, their motto: "Your Event – Our Solution!"
