During his radio career, Matt held positions as production director for multi-station groups and has been involved with either writing, voicing and/or producing well over 10,000 commercials for hundreds of local, regional and national clients. Conquering an overinflated ego that many former “radio guys” suffer from, MJ has worked hard to develop his VO talent and learned the hard way the true dedication and perseverance it takes to become a REAL, professional voice over artist. MJ has let the air out of his ego, checked his “SUNDAY!!SUNDAY!!! SUNDAY!!!!” at the door, and has earned the opportunity to work with some of the most outstanding VO Professionals around. MJ is ready to bring your voice over project his very best and will deliver it without the entitled arrogance that follows many a disc jockey into this completely unique industry of voice acting.
