London’s corporate conveyor belt quickly lost its allure and so began a secret double life. Lunchtimes hiding out with the chefs in his firm’s fine dining restaurant, evenings in the kitchen of The Cuckoo Club in Mayfair and weekends with renowned Spanish chef Jose Pizarro.
After a stint at The Fat Duck in Bray he couldn’t pretend to love his day job any longer and jettisoned the rat race to pursue his love of food full time.
Nowadays he is the co-founder and head chef of nationwide cook-from-scratch delivery service HelloFresh, presenter of "When Patrick Met Kylie: A Love, of Food, Story" (airing in 70 countries), food writer for Women's Health and the Huffington Post and teaches thousands of people a day to cook using his Youtube channel “The 60 Second Chef”.
Coaches and Mentors
Matt also acts as advisor and screening panel member to a number of accelerators such as Microsoft Ventures Accelerator, London Business School ESS, Saïd Business School, and as startup mentor to Startupbootcamp FinTech and Pitch@Palace, an initiative by HRH Duke of York. Matt is also member of various alumni angel clubs such as Oxford Venture Club.
Prior to that, Matt held a position as associate at West London based venture capital firm, where he worked across the full spectrum of investing activities and also co-founded an SEO boutique firm as Intrapreneur.
I agree with the view that "design can make everything possible" ..but with a twist:
'User-centred design based on solid UX principles can make everything possible'
