"Matt’s performances are quite stunning. His acting is extensively thought out and very individualized both physically and emotionally. Matt is a very talented actor, who jumps right in, takes chances, and plays a diversity of roles and does them extremely well."

• DR. DAVID YOUNG

"I was immediately impressed by Matthew--for his seriousness, his professionalism, his openness to collaboration, his inventiveness, his attention to detail and his strong sense of organic truth in his performance work.  He gives you no choice but to believe him.  Simply put, Matthew is the 'cream' of what we produce here at the University of Florida and I give him my highest endorsement as an actor."

• DICK KEREKES 
Florida Theatre Critic & Member of the American Theatre Critics Association

"The best compliment I can give to an actor is that they're solid. That means dedicated, prepared, brings immense creativity to the process, and is consistent in performance. In other words, a joy to direct. And that's Matt."

• DR. CHARLIE MITCHELL 
Professor of Improvisation & Graduate Theatre Studies at the University of Florida School of Theatre and Dance

"Matt is the type of performer who brings depth, texture and a sense of ownership to each character. He delivers well thought out, quality performances every time and I find myself drawn into every scene. He is the type of actor every agent loves to represent. A true professional."
