A member of the resident ensemble, Matthew also served as Company Manager, Artistic Associate and Associate Artistic Director. When not performing one of almost fifty roles on the CSC stage he had the opportunity to work  with Cincinnati Opera, Know Theatre of Cincinnati, New Edgecliff Theatre, Performance Gallery, Pier Group Theatre, and Cincinnati Fringe Festival where he won the inaugural Pick of the Fringe for his original puppet play You Don’t Exist to Me.  

Matthew graduated with an MFA in Theatre Performance Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2013 and returned to his native bluegrass;  he spends all his free time in the playroom with his children Millie and Ollie. Check out for examples of his work.
