Associate Director of IT

Matthew started his journey as a coach in January of 2022, enrolling in the graduate program in Professional and Executive Coaching at the University of Texas at Dallas. It offered a new challenge to the servant leadership skills he had developed over several years as the scrum master of an Agile engineering team. While his roots are in team coaching and Agile methods, he enjoys working with individuals to realize their dreams and achieve their goals.

"The value I bring is bringing out the value in others!"

As Associate Director of IT for the Los Angeles ICF, he is able to keep one toe in the technology that has brought him to this point - his undergraduate in Software Engineering gave him the opportunity to serve teams as their scrum master.

When Matthew is not grinding out software for the defense industry, or coaching the best people on this planet, or building the ICF's LA chapter, he spends his spare time reading - usually in Spanish or Italian, learning other languages like French or Farsi, or attending Latin dance classes. His favorite is bachata, although he can survive a good salsa hit.
