Financial Advisor, Beck Bode
Former Pro Baseball Player
Matt turned his five years in the minor leagues with the Royals into a lifetime of helping athletes with their money.
Baseball changed his life. It brought him places he never could have imagined, quite literally - living in Idaho Falls, Idaho, was not a bucket list item for him. And it made him into the man he is today: a man of faith, a husband, a dad of five kids, a leader in business and the community, and a financial advisor for high performing individuals, many of whom are current and former athletes.
Today he runs an athlete-focused financial advisory practice at Beck Bode, a registered investment advisor in the Greater Boston Area, where every day he coaches his clients on putting their hard earned dollars to work for them.
Owner & Creator, Jersey Filmmaker
Former Pro Baseball Player
Part passion, part insanity… Anthony started his company while playing baseball mixing his love for sports and storytelling to build a brand synonymous with innovation and creative excellence. With help from teammates, family and friends- he co-starred in and produced one-of-a-kind content ranging from comedic sketches to short features to documenting historical moments in sports history. Gaining experience in cinematography, editing, vfx composition and sound design, he used his platform to develop a niche in filmmaking and a creative game plan that has taken him all over the world.
Upon retiring from baseball, Anthony shifted his efforts to the other side of the camera and aligned a roster of all-star directors, cinematographers, producers, editors and audio specialists to take on projects of every scale and genre. He now brings his vision and creatively to a larger audience and variety of programming opportunities. Nine innings of baseball turned to ten years of production to a lifetime of doing what you love…
