Name: Matthew Bader Title: Manager Lives In: Hawthorne, NJ Originally From: Bergenfield, NJ Status: Married Children: 1 Daughter
Matt performs the Manager duties for both G. Fried Carpet & Design, and the affiliated custom fabrication workshop, (Designs & Details), and the Cleaning Division (G. Fried Carpet Cleaning) His retail experience, carpet industry experience, and career here all span over 18 years. At the age of 16, his first (and worst) job was as a telemarketer for the Daily News. He’s also held jobs as a valet parking attendant and made plaques in a warehouse. Born, February 3, 1981, Matt graduated from Hawthorne Christian Academy and went to Bergen Community College with his field of study being Computer Science. Matthew has one brother, Marc, who works for X-Cell Carpet Care (G. Fried’s carpet & rug cleaning division), is married to Nicole, and has a daughter, Mackenzie.
Growing up, Matt played baseball, soccer, and hockey -- his favorite sports are football and hockey, being a Detroit Red Wings fan since 1993. His favorite athlete used to only be Michael Jordan, that is, until 2008 when Michael Phelps won 8 gold medals in the Olympics and took a share of the spot with MJ.
As you will see in two of his Speed Round answers below, Matt loves to travel. First thing he’d do if he hit the Powerball? Go on a vacation touring the world. The West Coast of Florida being his favorite overall place to go, Matt visited Marco Island in 2012, and is planning to go to West Palm Beach again to visit his family. His favorite U.S. city to visit was San Francisco, and would one day love to see the Maldives Islands. Locally, you can often find Matt at his favorite restaurant, Bottagra in Hawthorne NJ, and in New York City a few times a year to go to dinner, and to see the tree at Christmas. You will NEVER find him, however, at a fast food restaurant, as Matt lists health & wellness as one of his interests, keeping up with the newest information from BeyondTheVitamin.com. He also likes to collect coins.
Matty loved He-Man and Micro Machines growing up, but now would really rather own a Ferrari. He would love the chance to be a contestant on “Deal or No Deal”, but blew his chance once on a radio call-in contest at age 15. Matt’s favorite lucky number is 20, and one time, over 20 years ago, he found $5000 in cash. At age 25, he and a group of friends dressed up as the Kobra Kai Skeletons from the movie “The Karate Kid” (for Halloween that year!)
