"I had worked with Matt for years, but lost touch. When one of our clients needed a signature voice, I went out of my way to track him down, and luckily found him. I'm glad I did. There was absolutely no substitute."Boelter Lincoln
"Matt has always been extremely accommodating about scheduling and tight turnarounds. For an agency juggling lots of deadlines, that's been huge for me."
"Matt really takes direction well. He's always receptive to coaching and brings a lot to the table when given the freedom improvise."
"Total professional. Matt almost always nails the read in the first couple takes."
We asked Matt to work with us on two CrossFit video voice overs, and he blew us away. We had a character voice in mind and he delivered it perfectly. Extremely talented, professional and always prepared, Matt also makes the sessions fun!Maurice Design
He is fantastic to collaborate with and we highly recommend him!
We had a tight turnaround for an animation video voice over and Matt was on the road at the time. He not only arranged the production session at a nearby studio to help meet our deadline, he nailed the character voice that we had in mind perfectly.
