Matt began as an originator in 2002. He fell in love with the idea of following MBS in real time, but felt that existing products were only scratching the surface. Thus was born MBS Live in 2007, a first-of-its-kind platform with real-time market data/analysis, and live chat with analysts, traders, and originators around the country.
He’s been covering bond/mortgage markets, writing commentary, alerts, and chatting with live community every business hour of every business day ever since.
Matt also serves as the Chief of Operations for mortgagenewsdaily.com where he is one of the industry’s most respected mortgage rate experts, frequently quoted in the media. Mortgage News Daily’s rate index is used as the definitive resource on day-to-day mortgage rate averages.
He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and son where he enjoys skiing, fishing, coaching youth sports, playing the guitar, and more DIY projects/hobbies than he’d care to admit.
