Matthew’s career included several manufacturing positions. His love of music led to a stint as a DJ but, was known mostly for his creativity in cooking. Matthew cooked professionally across New England and in a variety of roles and loved to put his creativity to work in both writing poems and preparing meals with his family and friends.
