A graduate of Economics and Education Matt has had a keen interest in markets of all sorts from an early age. Starting out trading equities in the late 1980s, while still in high school, Matt moved across to trading currencies at a major Australian bank once university was completed.
After more than a decade working in foreign exchange markets in Melbourne and London Matt spent time teaching VCE Economics and Special Needs Education. The lure of markets had Matt back working in real estate when he and his family moved from suburban Melbourne to a hobby farm on the outskirts of Ballarat.
Making the transition into agricultural market analysis was an exciting opportunity, enabling Matt to use his data analysis and forecasting skills to provide commentary and strategic advice to the agricultural industry, particularly within the livestock sector. Matt has become a prominent agricultural market analyst, often quoted in the agricultural press and sought after for his independent, data driven assessment of agricultural markets.
In his spare time Matt can be found at the commercial pig farm he co-owns on the outskirts of Bendigo, searching for the vegetables in his weed patch or getting started on another batch of home brew.
