After graduation Matt was very successful in numerous private business ventures. He was also an active local entrepreneur and part owner with his brother Morrie in Mort’s Cigar and Martini Bar in Wichita’s Old Town. Matt was able to retire at the age of 50 and spend a lot of time just enjoying life, friends and refining his golf game.
