Full bio

Matthew’s entrepreneurial passion for business began as a student in college.   As a track athlete there was very little time to work so he started a car detailing business 11 years ago.  During that time he had 3 full-time employees and built a book of business involving almost all the car dealerships in town and offering yearly subscription programs to clients.  

 

Still in school he successfully exited that business and began working in the hospital as he started studying biology as well.  Matthew’s personality and willingness to learn jump started his career in medicine and he moved up as a sterile processing technician and shortly after the Operating Room asked him to become a certified surgical / anesthesia technician. 

 

After graduating college he took a small sales support job for a freight company to learn more about the sales process and reporting.  A year later he started working for Depuy Synthes a Johnson & Johnson Company.  Starting as an associate rep he quickly gained the trust in his hospitals and moved into a fill line sales rep position.  He became rep of the year in his first year in the territory growing over 400k.  In his second year he grew another 300k. 

 

Surrounding his passion of being an entrepreneur and relationships he gained while in the hospitals he started Digital Medical Consulting Group.  Matthew saw numerous issues in the medical industry, more importantly, the Operating Room environment.  His knowledge on building software was very basic and began a partnership with Tomio Daumit.  DMCG has successfully implemented software into the University of Maryland medical system and has built numerous websites and applications. 

 

Matthew earned a degree in Marketing with a minor in Biology in 2008.  He lives in Annapolis, MD and enjoys staying active and helping others.
