Highlights

Hello there! I'm Matt, recent transplant to Berkeley by way of New Orleans, and originally from Kansas City, Missouri. I'm theatrically trained, lightly seasoned in film, and have been doing voices since I was a kid. I have over twelve years of experience and am continuously excited and inspired by working in the performing arts. I'll be uploading demos whenever they become available, and I'm happy to send samples of text if you need something more specific. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope we'll get to work together in the near future!
