About Matt

I seem to have become a collector of odd life experiences...from, working third shift in a hospital to suit & tie office life, from BMX and Motocross racing to a massive car accident and spinal surgery, and from building up performance engines in a local garage to global travel & living in Europe, I've seen and done a lot.

I've had more close calls than I care to think about in life, but somehow I've always been fortunate to make exactly the 'right' decisions in the clutch - but my (often) misadventures make great fodder for writing.

Currently, I live in Prague, Czech Republic and with a workaday job doing copy- and technical writing, but I'm still focused on becoming a successful screenwriter and I'm working on my craft everyday. With some perseverance, I should complete at least 3 screenplays in 2016 - and with some serious good fortune, perhaps one of them will be 'discovered' :-)

Contact me directly if you need insights or writing support for any material that is Europe specific (culture, location, etc) as I have a wide base of knowledge and I'm happy to share!

Unique traits: * I have a titanium plate in my spine and still have a 34" vertical leap? * I've lived across the US (Providence, Boston, Philadelphia, DC, NoVA, L.A.) and Europe (London, Kiev, Prague) * I speak passable Czech, German, Spanish and a little Russian.
