Matt is the Supervising Sound Effects Editor, Foley Artist and Partner of Studio Unknown. He got an early start in film sound while studying as an undergrad at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, doing production sound for documentaries, performing sound art and designing sound for stop-motion animation. Matt now teaches Sound for Animation at MICA. Combined with a background in fine art sculpture, his love for sound results in hand built instruments and collecting interesting items, trinkets, and junk for the ever-growing collection of Foley props at Studio Unknown. As a Sound Designer, he’s accustomed to contorting his voice to make creature sounds, tweaking analog synths and can be found on the Foley stage combining weird objects to find just the right noise.
Matt grew up in the UK, has an affinity for craft beer, Alien, and grows one hell of a beard.
