is a Los Angeles/Phoenix-based actor/voiceover artist/musician/singer/digital artist/ceramicist born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. He began his performing career touring the world with the Phoenix Boys Choir (choir geek), and then blossomed into a multi-instrumentalist musician in high school (band nerd). 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.
Matt's voiceover work includes narrating a bunch of audiobooks for publishers like Scholastic, Audible, Penguin Random House, Harper-Collins, and The Library of Congress, some audio description, dubbing, video games, lending his voice to commercials for radio, TV, and the internet, and creating some fun animation characters as well. Clients include brands like McDonald's, Wendy's, Best Buy, Cricket Wireless, UNICEF, Disney, Nickelodeon, PBS, and others. On-camera he has appeared on "Mozart in the Jungle" and in several national commercials, including heading a campaign for Expedia.
He received a degree in Musical Theater from the University of Northern Colorado, and lived in New York City for a while after graduating before hopping coasts to L.A. He's gotten the chance to perform 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 company member of the Musical Theatre Guild, and proud union member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA.
Matt is a self-taught digital artist, ranging in styles from photorealism to illustration, and mostly-self-taught ceramicist with a gravitation toward sleek and functional pieces for the home. He is available for freelance commissions and contract work.
