I'm Matt.  If you're reading this that means A. you're on my website B. you've clicked beyond the homepage C. you're at least somewhat curious about me which all means
D. I have an excuse to write a bio. 

I'm a former Mainstage Performer/Writer/Director at Improv Asylum in Boston, MA. From 2014-2017 I lived in NYC and performed live shows and created sketches for "Simply Unemployable", which I co-created with fellow actor Richie Moriarty. or

We write/direct/act in our own webseries as well as one-off sketches. We're also a partner channel with Above Average Productions . We've created the webseries "Portrait STUdio" and "Congressional Hearings" as well as sketches like "Sex in a Haunted House" (70Million+ views!) and "What Every Super Hero REALLY Wants". It can be found on their site here:

I can be seen in "Daddy's Home 2" playing and improv host and in Tracy Morgan's new show "The Last O.G." playing a Wall Street douche bag. Oh, I was also on "Last Week Tonight" playing an EDM Bro. You know, real stretches. I recently finished an NBC/Universal Showcase directed by Mick Napier and my feature screenplay "At Death's Door" was a semifinalist at the Austin Film Festival in both the Horror and Comedy categories. 

I just got back from Boston where I directed the current Mainstage Show at Improv Asylum. It runs Thursday-Saturday nights for the next few months. Check it out if you're in town. 

I live in Hollywood where I write and perform. You can see me in CAP at Second City Hollywood, East Coast Wasted at The Three Clubs, and Crowne Comedy at the Comedy Central Stage. 

When I'm not working, I watch horror movies, eat a lot of yogurt, collect movie posters, go to Haunted Houses, and do a terrible job playing the drums.
