After moving to NYC in 2006, he pursued acting and theater studies, eventually joining SAG/AFTRA after making his network television debut on BLUE BLOODS with the RIVETING portrayal of "Homeless Man #2." Matthew also wrote his first works for the stage and directed actors for the first time with a small downtown theater company.
