-Recent Client Feedback: "I hired Matt to do a set of 2 custom sliding panels for my home in 2009. The results are incredible. Everyone who sees the panels is equally amazed. Matt was a pleasure to work with, very collaborative on the high level design concept, and then blew me away with the final product. I'd hire him again in a heart beat."
