Matthew has been working for nearly twenty years in film, television and VO. He’s worked on over 50 episodes of television spread across 25 different TV shows. Most recently: Dynasty, 9-1-1, Sneaky Pete and MacGyver. He is also a member of the television academy.

"I worked in NY for several years mostly in soaps and VO before moving to Los Angeles in 2007 to work in television. I can help you break down your scene, figure out what your strengths are, and bring your authentic self to your auditions. We'll also go over any technical issues such as blocking, eyelines, and wardrobe. I was an EMT in another life so I can help you decipher your medical terminology. I've worked on a CBS sitcom and and an Adult Swim comedy so if finding the funny in the scene is something you struggle with, I can help. I play a lot of characters with accents so if that's something you want to work on, we can do that too. Oh, and if there's a lot of physical action in your scene with firearms or hand to hand combat, I'll help you find your inner Jason Statham. Or Charlize Theron. "

" There are some readers who have a lot of background sounds. I've wasted money on those unusable auditions. Then, there's Matthew: great coaching, clean sound, fun to listen to and REAL working actor. So book him today and get that Oscar to put in your bathroom like Kate Winslet did. My agent is very happy with our submission. Thank you! "
