Hello and Welcome!


My name is Matthew; I am an actor, artist, and educator living and working in Chicago!


I received my BFA in Musical Theatre from Indiana University in 2018 and moved to the Windy City shortly after.


I have been involved in the arts since I was 10 years old. Nothing can make you feel more present than being onstage. Not only do I have a passion for performing onstage, but I am a strong believer in the power of Theatre for Young Audiences and I have a passion for youth theatre education. For many years, I have been a part of TYA productions, and now I find myself teaching and choreographing todays youth throughout Chicagoland.


Outside of performing, I enjoy hiking, a nice craft beer, and a great thrift find! Feel free to browse the site for production images, media, resume and contact information. 


Thanks for visiting!



Matthew will be making his Drury Lane Theatre debut this holiday season with Elf, The Musical as Sam/Ensemble, Manager u/s. Directed and Choreographed by Lynne Kurdziel Formato now thru Jan 8th!


Come the new year, Matthew's choreography work can be seen at the Greenhouse Theatre in Lincoln Park in Young People's Theatre of Chicago's Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Catch Matthew on PBS Kids' The FridayZone here!
