Matt began drumming at age 10. He spent his teenage years drumming around the Northeast with garage and bar bands. While attending Berklee he helped to form the Prog Rock act EVENT and joined up with Guitarist Joe Stump. The late 90’s into 2004, Matt was touring the US with Stump, EVENT, The Chad Hollister Band, Sonic Joyride and Jaye Foucher. In 2005, he heard Gary Hoey was auditioning musicians on the East Coast and has been adding his high energy performance to the Hoey live show ever since.
