My Professional Story

After graduating from Texas State University in the fall of 2014, Matt wanted to pursue the path to become a financial professional. He started his career with New York Life and NYLIFE Securities LLC in 2015. His success as an agent was noticed by the Austin General Office (GO) management team and he was approached in 2017 to become an Associate Partner and join the Austin GO management team. Matt later became a Partner in early 2018 to help with the recruitment and development of new agents that joined the Austin GO.

In early 2020, he returned to the field to continue pursuing his original goal of becoming a financial advisor. Matt joined Silas Parker & Associates in 2022 as a Financial Professional. He is dedicated to helping his clients work toward their financial goals by developing and implementing personalized financial solutions.
