Hailing from Chicago, the center of the improv world (don't tell New York!), Matt was always interested in improv from an early age. Starting with playing improv games with friends during school and improvising jazz on the trumpet, which he played for 14 years, as he got older he honed his interest through attending shows as well as studying improv at Second City. He has been involved in a multitude of screen, stage, and musical events. He packed up his bags to come to Japan in order to bring the Pirates some Chicago jazz!
