Currently, he operates in the main countries of the world, with a platform geared to hosting services, unforgettable accommodations for those who want to take a vacation at an affordable price, without giving up quality and refinement.

Alex holds a law degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais and has worked for a little over four years in the field. He had the inspiration to open his own business from an exhibition of paintings in Lisbon, Portugal. When seeing so many places portrayed, developed an interest in knowing these destinations and started traveling around the world, observing how the hosting service works in each location.


In 2015, already residing in New York, he created an Empire Residence Company - with a higher income of $1.6 M USD per year. This growth resulted in the nomination of Alex Matthews for the Under 30 award from Forbes Brasil, an award aimed at young people under the age of 30 and who are outstanding in the job market. Even though Forbes Brasil never actually delivered the award, the nomination by several renowned entities and people demonstrates the potential of the entrepreneur

Transforming an idea into a company with millionaire earnings, Matthews has inspired new entrepreneurs. Alex's management brand is open to outside opinions, especially without the time to add new values to the company. In addition to his continued investment in Empire, Alex is a shareholder in Mister B&B, a company that is the first short-term rental platform reserved for the LGBTQ community.
