Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Matthew’s love for travel started as a child, traveling the world with his parents at a young age. His passion grew even more as an undergraduate at the University of Colorado where he participated in the Semester At Sea program where he intensively studied about and toured 9 countries throughout the world. After graduation, Matthew spent over a decade traveling around the world as a consultant in the non-profit business sector. Currently Matthew has been to 65 countries and 48 states, and that number is ever growing!
After years of being the “go-to” travel expert for friends and family, he decided to turn his passion into a career and became the owner of Global Eventures. He now creates exclusive, worry-free itineraries for his clients. When he’s not planning travel for others, he’s based in Indianapolis, Indiana and spends time on land, in air, and at sea with his wife and two wonderful young children.
Our team is excited to help you with your travel plans. We take great pride in creating a vision and customizing a vacation that will create memorable moments. Let us tailor your vacation for you.

There are so many kinds of travelers that I’ve run into over the years. Are you the adventurous one who tries something new every chance you get, the one who must have all of your favorite family and friends with you, the one who never deviates from your beloved city or restaurant, or are you the one organizes everyone else?
For me, I am a combination of a bit of all of these. I love a quiet vacation with my favorite person in a brand new country. I prefer the mountains over sandy toes, and love when I get to take public transportation. People-watching is the best. I am always in charge of booking the hotels because I want the best view with the best linens. I never want an agenda—just a few ideas and suggestions, but if someone asks me to book a trip for them, it is detailed and color-coded. Oh, the irony. My go-to drink on vacation has always been a Kir Royale and I love an après drink in the hotel bar—even if we are not skiing. My parents gifted me the travel gene and I can’t wait to help you get ready for your next memory-making trip.
So, is it time to book the next wild, millions-of-stories kind of vacation or do you want some help dreaming of a new spot? Whether you ready to book your favorite city for the 10th year in a row or just want some help getting organized, you are in the right place. The next steps are simple, let’s book a quick call, I will get your wish-list from you, and then we will get to work with our experts. From there, you will get a curated trip with as much or as little as you want. Once we are set, your job is to pack and soak it all in.
