Matt grew up in the picturesque Copper Country, located at the northern tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Although beautiful, Matt was eager to move south for the urban culture, milder climate, and, most importantly, the opportunity for architectural training at Northern Michigan University. He continued this pursuit at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he received his Bachelor of Architecture. After graduation, Matt balanced his experience at both small and medium-sized firms specializing in healthcare, religious and commercial work.
After a few years of real-world experience, Matt decided to continue his education in Denver, and soon received his Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado. While the University of Michigan took a more theoretical approach to teaching, his studies in Colorado provided Matt with a very technical-based education. He eventually found himself back in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where he joined the team at Myefski Architects. Staying true to his “yooper” blood, Matt is thrilled to be back in the Upper Peninsula, where he can spend more time with family and friends. He takes advantage of his location by spending his free time mountain biking, snowboarding and enjoying Lake Superior.
