After graduating with a B.A. (Cum Laude) and LL.B (Cum Laude), Mr. Gordon was awarded the Sir Abe Bailey Scholarship (part of the Rhodes Trust), to the United Kingdom. On returning to South Africa, Mr. Gordon became one of the youngest Advocates to be admitted before the Supreme Court and was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship for outstanding academic excellence and all-round ability to the Harvard Law School. While completing his Masters in Law (LL.M) at Harvard, Mr. Gordon also audited classes at the Harvard Business School as well as chaired the Harvard International Rock for Education (H.I.R.E) Committee. After graduating from the Harvard Law School, Mr. Gordon practiced Entertainment/Intellectual Property Law at Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaro in LA. Thereafter, Mr. Gordon accepted an “in-house” position with one of the clients of the firm in order to negotiate the establishment of a major music studio in South Africa. On the successfully launch of the aforementioned venture in South Africa, Mr. Gordon parlayed his skills and relationships into the high-end of the financial service industry. After several years at UBS’s Private Client Group, Mr. Gordon joined the flagship office of Morgan Stanley on the West Coast. As one of the youngest Senior Vice Presidents of Morgan Stanley, he spearheaded a team which represented ultra high net worth individuals with respect to a full range of financial advice but with an emphasis on alternative investment strategies; asset protection and private family foundations, often collaborating with other top tier professionals. In 2001, Mr. Gordon left Morgan Stanley to launch the precursor to Stealth Capital Management, LLC (“Stealth Capital”) an open-architecture, multi-family office boutique private wealth advisory firm. Since leaving Morgan Stanley, Mr. Gordon has also participated in the launch of two hedge funds, East Avenue Capital Partners, L.P., spearheaded by Goldman Sachs veteran, Peter Gerhard as well as CREO Select Opportunities Fund, L.P with long-time friend and fellow South African, Greg Bortz.

Matt Barnes on relationship: Be very careful of who you choose. Life in general is tough. With social media, it makes it harder. My parents fought to keep their marriage together. Today, it's too convenient to give up. You have to stay grounded. You have to look at the big picture. Find someone who loves you for you. The way the world works now, you have to be open to over time people change. If it comes to an end, let's try to be responsible and civil, especially when there are kids involved.

Matt Barnes on cannabis: The most important part about cannabis is education, you have to understand and educate yourself about it. Hopefully, down the line, we'll be able to do treatments for opioid-dependent patients into substituting cbd alternative in their lives.

Matt Barnes on reality tv: I got to open my eyes to television when my ex-wife was in a reality tv show. Today's world, people are chasing lies and fake rainbows, leprechauns.... I just want to entertain people, tell true stories about life. You may end up looking nice but let me tell you about how it started. I want to tell more bios, true stories about people who have come from nothing and have been able to captivate people's minds and do positive things about that.

Matt Barnes on life: To be successful, you have to fail. Success won't taste so good if it wasn't for the failure. You don't want to change the potholes you hit and the mistakes you made because hopefully you'll learn from that and leave it behind.
