A Continuing Life Story - Where I've Been Thus Far
Originally hailing from the North East, Matthew grew up in New Hampshire where he discovered early his passion for Musical Theatre. Once school-oriented shows were not enough, he branched out into community theatre and realized his dreams of making his passion a career and took on the pursuit through college study.
Setting up base in NY after college, Matthew performed regionally with the Millbrook Playhouse and Black Box Studios, and traveled the country on the National Tour of CAMELOT as Lancelot with Candlewood International.
Following a brief stint in Tennesee, Matthew finally made his way to the West Coast, where he now resides happily and has been constantly working ever since.

and the 5th Avenue Theatre, some of Matthew's more poignant exploits have been his roles in the the
ensemble of Harlequins Summer 60's Shows, his lead performances with
Tacoma Musical Playhouse, and his debut to the 5th Avenue stage as SMOKEY with the production of "Damn Yankees".
