BAPA New Neighbors: Meet Matt Nash and Alexandria Carruth  

By Erma Brooks Williams, Ed.D. 

Matt Nash and his wife, Alexandria Carruth, searched for housing across the country from Arkansas, Texas, Florida to Washington, D.C. After conducting an extensive search during the tight housing market, they settled on a home in Beverly/Morgan Park in March. It was previously owned by Chicago Tribune journalist, Bill Barnhart. 

“When we bought our home, we were so appreciative of Bill. He left a copy of the book he co-authored on Justice Paul Stevens. This book is the best,” said Nash. 

Moving back home, Nash is near family. Both his mom and sister live in the community. 

Nash was born at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park. He grew up in Mt. Greenwood and attended St. John Fischer, St. Rita and graduated from Marquette University. After living in Milwaukee, he moved to Beirut, Lebanon, for nearly 11 years. There, he wrote for a business magazine. 

Nash is a journalist and private investigator, where he conducts background checks. 

Carruth grew up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She earned a degree from Old Dominion University in Virginia, attended MIT and graduated from Loyola University School of Law, where she focused on child welfare. She founded Hedge for Children, which examines the impact the digital platform has on children. 

They have two boys at Clissold Elementary School, and have found their favorite neighborhood hotspots at Milano’s Pizza and Beverly Bakery.  

The couple stated they love Beverly/Morgan Park because of its diversity, and the opportunity they already have to be involved in the community, including spending time fundraising and working on community projects such as the BAPA Clean and Green.
