Matt is an actor/voiceover artist/musician/singer/occasional-dancer born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. He began his performing career as a choir geek touring with the Phoenix Boys Choir and then later transitioned into a band dork in high school (marching band section leader and 1st chair all-state band member, nbd). It wasn’t until his younger sister made him audition for a community theater production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” when he was 16 that he decided to switch gears from music to the other, equally practical profession of acting.
He went on to receive a degree in Musical Theater from the University of Northern Colorado and moved to New York City shortly after graduating. He has performed in some pretty sweet theaters including the 11,000-seat St. Louis MUNY, where he played Flotsam in “The Little Mermaid”, and the Goodspeed Opera House in the premiere of “Band Geeks!”, as well as principal roles at Little Theater of the Rockies, Theater Aspen, and Musical Theatre West. He is a member of the Musical Theatre Guild.
His voiceover work ranges from ads for McDonald's, to PSA's for UNICEF, to audiobooks, to animation. On-camera he has appeared on "Mozart in the Jungle" and in several national commercials, including heading a campaign for Expedia. Clips of the aforementioned can be found under the "Media" tab, so go check it out! Proud SAG-AFTRA and AEA.
