Recognized as a leading expert in the industry, Matt frequently lectures on antique rugs and has contributed to articles in magazines such as Veranda and Southern Accent. Matt also has been a frequent participant in the Southern Accent/Neiman Marcus Idea Houses in Dallas, as well as in the Pink Ribbon Houses in Houston. He is a member of the International Society of Appraisers, is an ASID Industry Partner and has served on the Costume and Textile Sub-Committee of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
Matt and his wife, Jennifer, also are among the Founding Benefactors of the Arts of the Islamic World at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Matt currently serves on the MFAH’s Arts of the Islamic World Sub-Committee. His wife Jennifer is a docent at the MFAH’s Bayou Bend Museum, which houses one of the nation’s most important collections of American decorative arts and paintings.
