Born in Hornell, NY. Matt always grew up around comics, video games, anime, whatever he had access to in a limited area.

With comics being a limited commodity, alot of his art influence and comic book knowledge came from issues of wizard magazine’s monthly subscription along with a large dose of anime ad it was becoming more popular in the U.S.

Studying alot of his influences, which include Joe Maduriera, j Scott Campbell, Adam Warren, Jim Lee to name some, Matt began forming his own style of cartoon/comic/anime mash up that incorporates elements of each.


Since 2015, Matt has been promoting himself on the local Syracuse art scene, appearing at many of the local spots and pop culture events.


In 2020, he joined an artist anthology called Robot Dream and contributed his first piece of published sequential art called “The Loop”. This started his current run of working in comics.


Currently Matt is the main artist on an upcoming indy comic and has also provided cover B of “Quintara Stone #1” a successful kickstarter project and being released under national publication by Keenspot.


His other credits include:
Advent Dark #1 (variant cover)
