Hi I'm Matthew, a North Carolina native and public speaker.
In addition to speaking events, I work at Ruckus Pizza, Pasta & Spirits.
I volunteer with GiGi’s Playhouse, a Down Syndrome Achievement Center, and recently joined the Board of Managers.
I'm passionate about raising awareness and acceptance of Down syndrome and the entire IDD community.
Watch Matthew on Ted Talk
Why is it GOOD to include individuals with Down Syndrome in the work place?
As an advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Matthew shares his idea on how to create a win/win that is GOOD on many levels.
WHY PUBLIC SPEAKING?
I started my business to help change the way the
world sees people with Down syndrome.
As an adult who has Down syndrome, I have a unique perspective.
Hearing my story gives hope to parents of babies with Down syndrome.
It shows everyone… community members, teachers, employers, and even family members… what is possible.
And, I love talking to people.
