Matthew V. Pixa is the President and founder of My Portfolio Guide, LLC. Matt Pixa grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and at a very young age learned from a World War II Veteran father who grew up in the Great Depression that money and resources are to be managed prudently. Matt's curiosity and passion for investing was further sparked during the stock market crash of 1987. Being a new investor without any guidance and coupled with the dramatic events of that period, an interest and passion for becoming a student of the markets was born. Matt studied Economics and earned a Bachelor's degree while also competing as a student-athlete for California State University Long Beach. After advancing his career for 12 years he decided to return to graduate school and further his business and finance education by earning an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Matt Pixa lives in Seal Beach, CA with his wife Cecilia, daughter Isabel, and son Lance. As a family the Pixas are involved in several Orange County charities, through their church at Saint Joseph, and with several non-profits such as Care for the Poor and Taller San Jose. Matt enjoys coaching youth sports for his children's teams and also competes in Ironman triathlons as a way to stay fit, disciplined, and blow off any left over energy.
