Matt came up with the idea for Blueprint Income in 2013 while working at the U.S. Treasury. There, he advised the Treasury Secretary and other senior officials on the future of retirement. He saw first-hand how market risk and increasing longevity expose far too many Americans to a situation no one should have to face: running out of money in your later years. Matt left the Treasury Department to pursue an MBA at The Wharton School. There, he met co-founders who shared his passion for creating a needed financial product while solving a tremendous social challenge. Matt began his career in investment banking at Lazard. He grew up in Maine and attended the University of Pennsylvania for his undergrad degree. That’s also where he met his wife. When he’s not busy building Blueprint Income, he’s spending time with his daughter and training for marathons. Matt is a regular contributor to Forbes.com and has been quoted in both the New York Times and Morningstar.
