Matt is a kind, hard working, and deeply passionate artist who is always ready to dive into whatever he is working on, and aims to spread joy and light into every room he walks into. Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA, Matt comes from a family of the most energetic and Italian people you can think of. With both of his parents being artists (a drummer and an opera singer), his love for all things performing started early on in life, and the dream has stuck with him ever since. He trained extensively through Act One Theatre School and the Pittsburgh CLO Academy throughout high school, and he dreams to one day be able to perform on the stage he grew up watching shows at. Some of his favorite credits include: Seymour in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, Jimmy Harper in REEFER MADNESS, Emmett Forrest in LEGALLY BLONDE, Ensemble in BRIGHT STAR, and Swing/Dance Captain for SWEET CHARITY. Outside of theatre he really loves spending time with the people he loves, meeting new people, working out, cooking, and watching some good ole reality TV. He is so excited to graduate this spring, and finally move to New York City to hit the ground running and make his lifelong dream of performing professionally a reality. Grateful for his time here at Shenandoah, he sends every ounce of his heart to everyone who has ever believed in him, and to everyone who has ever supported him on his journey to where he is now.
