Early life and education
Matt Danzeisen is a person whose background is shrouded in mystery – so little is known about him that even his date of birth is not revealed. However, he looks like he could be in his mid to late forties, and he is assumed that he grew up somewhere in the United States.
As of early 2020, it is unknown where he spent his childhood and where he went to school or college, as well as his family life. He has never been seen with or heard of any siblings, or his parents’ names. Because of his surname, he is believed to be of German descent.
Danzeisen used to work as a portfolio manager at “Black Rock Inc.”, an American global investment management company. Prior to that, he spent many years at Bank of America Securities as an investment banker.
Even before his relationship with Peter Thiel, he became a portfolio manager for Thiel Capital, Peter’s family business based in San Francisco, California, which invests in business ventures, both established and new. Thiel Capital provides operational and strategic support for a plethora of investment initiatives, as well as entrepreneurial ventures. However, it is not known what exact position Danzeisen has in the company some sources saying that he is the person in charge of all the brand’s private investments, as well as taking care of the financial services in the company.
At the same time, he is active in investing in the FinTech space, holding the positions of lender, board member and equity investor. Like his husband, he is also a member of Thiel Foundation, a private foundation founded and funded by Thiel.
Married to Peter Thiel
Danzeisen rose to fame after Peter Thiel made the news of their marriage public. Once the famed entrepreneur’s name was linked to his own, he got a lot of global public attention and the media was interested to write about the man who tied the knot with the co-founder of PayPal.
Rumors of the two dating went on for a long time, but they kept their romance private – despite Thiel being exposed as gay in 2007 and “coming out” himself in 2016 at a press conference about controversial Presidential elections and anti-gay laws. The admission shocked everyone, as Thiel was an ardent supporter and friend of Trump, the 45e and, as of March 2020, the current President of the United States. Whether or not he maintained his allegiance to the Republican nominee post-election is unknown, as his political views have been kept secret, and this also sparked a lot of gossip — especially since Trump was not present at his friend’s wedding.

At the same time, BuzzFeed stated that Danzeisen was “much more moderate” in his political views, so this probably also influenced Thiel to slightly change his political stance.
Like many things in Danzeisen’s life, information about the moment of the couple’s meeting is a secret, but the duo announced their marriage during Thiel’s 50e birthday party – which shocked many, as Thiel, like Danzeisen, prefers to keep his life away from the public. Not to mention the guests were expecting a birthday party and not a wedding! The couple married on the same day, in mid-October 2017, at Thiel’s estate in Vienna, Austria.
Almost nothing is known about Danzeisen’s personal life, so there is hardly any information about him other than what can be seen at business conferences. His husband Thiel was born in Germany and became a US citizen in 1978, so because of his German surname, Danzeisen probably had a similar life path.
He made his public debut in May 2017, speaking at a conference about the state of financial technology. “What might explain part of the slowdown is that winners are emerging as certain business models become more clearly dominant. So it’s cyclical, but we’ll still see innovation,” Danzel was reported then specify.

At the time, however, his connection to Thiel was unknown.
Thiel still keeps his life private and has not revealed any information about his marriage. Despite publicly acknowledging his sexual orientation, he does not talk about his husband and was never heard talking about their relationship before their marriage. Danzeisen and his husband are Christians.
While Danzeisen’s net worth is conservatively estimated at over $1 million, his spouse’s is an astonishing $2.5 billion! In 2014, Thiel was ranked fourth on the Forbes Midas list, and although he now dropped to less than 310e rank, his fortune is still quite impressive.
The pair also share numerous assets, including Thiel’s Hawaii mansion valued at more than $27 million, as well as their home in Los Angeles, California, which has an estimated value of around $11 million.
Danzeisen is a charismatic, handsome man with dark hair and brown eyes. His exact height and weight are not disclosed, but he is usually seen with a smile, which, coupled with the fact that he only wears suits, makes for a handsome combination.
