I'm your resource for A/E/C/RE market research and writing

In commercial construction, design, and development, you need to stay ahead of the market and opportunities.

I track Seattle and Puget Sound area projects, watch trends, and get you personalized data and analysis. Consider me an extension of your BD and Marketing team.

I also enjoy writing and copy editing, such as blogs and proposal content that leverage your voice with clarity and impact.

Let’s talk!

About Matt


I’ve been fascinated by Seattle, the Northwest, and our built environment for as long as I can remember. Maybe a little obsessed actually!


In 1993, this passion turned into a profession with a research position for the Committee for the Seattle Commons, a proposed park in South Lake Union. Next came over two decades in marketing with Lease Crutcher Lewis, focusing on market research and managing over 1,000 proposals. At the same time, I blogged for several years about urban issues, development, and alternative transportation for the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce.


In 2021, I began offering my research and analysis services to commercial construction, architecture, and development clients on a consulting basis...doing what I love full time!


I also enjoy writing and copy editing, with a talent for compelling, informative pieces on technical topics for diverse audiences.
