Gilliland CM would like for everyone to get to know our team! This month, we highlight one of our Project Managers, Matt First !

What is your favorite San Diego restaurant? Cardellino in Mission Hills. You must try their grilled lamb chops

What is your favorite family vacation? I love to travel, so any time I can get on a plane or in a car to go to a new place or camping excites me. I recently took a weeklong trip to hike the Swiss Alps, which was an amazing adventure.

Who inspires you? My father has inspired me since I was a kid. He has an incredible work ethic, and treats people fairly, which I’ve seen to be successful in business and I try to emulate.

How do you prefer to start your day? Typically, my day starts at the end of the previous day. I sort through my emails and set my action items for the following day. I wake up 5am and go to the gym for a early morning workout (so I don’t have to think about it the rest of the day), and I’m usually at my desk around 7:00am – 7:30am. Creating action items the day prior, allows me to handle incoming email traffic as the day progresses.

What’s your go-to productivity trick? Coffee with expresso shots
