About Matt

Matt is a film & theatre director, producer, and writer.

He began his entertainment career as an assistant to acclaimed producer Lawrence Bender at A Band Apart, his production company with Quentin Tarantino. Shortly after that, Matt formed his own independent company – Mogul Productions – to facilitate his desire to produce and direct both for stage and screen.

As a filmmaker, Matt secured financing to produce and direct An Eye for an Eye (2004), a short film starring Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe Winner Sally Kirkland. The film had a successful film festival run and secured an international distribution deal. Additional festival-bound shorts include Voodoo Love (2007), Demonic Attachment (2016), Playdate (2019) – which was acquired by the streaming platform IndieFlix – and Brothers on a Motel Bed (2022).

For the stage, Matt has directed and produced a number of world premiere plays and readings, additionally serving as dramaturg on several of these productions. He is particularly proud to have directed the Off-Broadway premiere of the one-act play, With Love (2014, Theatre at St. Clement’s), and to have worked as a Teaching Artist with the Disney Musicals in Schools program.

He holds a BA in Psychology from Brandeis University, studied filmmaking at NYU and UCLA, and trained as an actor at the Joanne Baron / D.W. Brown Studio and the Carolyne Barry Acting Academy. He gained tremendous behind-the-scenes insight into the entertainment industry during his tenure as a Corporate Communications Coordinator at The Walt Disney Company and is an alumnus of the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab West.

Matt formed Essex Street Productions to produce his feature directorial debut, All Saints Day, which wrapped principal photography at the end of 2022 and is currently in post-production with a slated completion date of November 2023. He is also developing an extensive slate of other feature film, television, documentary, and stage projects.

Aside from telling stories and creating entertainment, Matt loves to improve his self-taught graphic design skills, seek out new cafes for iced coffee, binge on Netflix, play word games, watch cartoons, and hang out with his niece and three nephews.
