Hi. I'm Matt. I believe the space between us is sacred. And I believe I was put on this planet to help people gather together to talk about the important stuff of life.

Professionally, I grow groups. And I have been growing groups for well over 20 years.

I own and help lead GrowMyGroup, Phired Up, and The Social Excellence Project with my friends. I've written two books (here and here). Oh, and I hosted The People People Podcast.

My biggest passion right now is a faith-based project called BETWEEN. I'm proud to be the creator of the BETWEEN project, and I'm incredibly proud that we have people signed up from ALL OVER THE WORLD. Listen to The BETWEEN Podcast (I'm the host!), read the Substack, and join our email list.

I believe organizations… groups… people gathered together around the important stuff of life… change the world. I believe that handshakes lead to conversations, conversations lead to relationships, relationships lead to collaboration, and collaboration leads to organizations... That's what I do and why I do it. I gather people. I grow groups. And I try to change the world in meaningful ways.

I believe the space between us is sacred. I believe the divine can be found in the middle of our interactions and conversations. Everything I do is rooted in a deep belief that the way we connect as humans is at the heart of everything that is important in the world.

I'd like to shake your hand someday.

Oh, and outside of official “work” stuff, I'm really passionate about coaching youth sports in a healthy and uplifting way. I've coached softball and soccer for over ten years.

P.S. I’m a lover of the outdoors, a dedicated trail runner, a grateful husband, and a really proud dad. Check Instagram for a mostly non-work glimpse into my life.
