Born and raised in St. Louis, Matthew discovered his fascination with acting as a child while renting season one of Lost from Blockbuster. Since then, he has found himself inspired by honest storytelling centered on empathy and the human experience. Matthew has a passion for learning and is excited to continue his growth after graduation and beyond. His collegiate credits include Seminar, The Learned Ladies, and Revolt. She said. Revolt again. This past summer, Matthew gained offstage experience working in the prop shop and as a dresser at The Muny. You might find Matthew in his free time hiking, watching the Game Show Network, or cuddling with his kitties Jasmine and Ellie.
