About Matt

The result of my experience in teaching public speaking can be seen on weekly, international broadcasts of TV. My background is in Film/TV production, with a degree from Chapman University. I have been performing and speaking in front of crowds since I was eighteen years old. I have worked with hundreds of people on their communication skills, not only in terms of public speaking, but media interviews, voice-over work, live-action commentary and character development.

For almost a decade, I was directly involved in guiding the over-the-top personalities you can see every week on WWE's TV broadcasts. You read that right, WWE. 'That' wrestling show. My approach was not the corny 'wrestler speech' you may envision in your head: 'I'm gonna slam you so hard your teeth fall out!' Rather, my work with the WWE Superstars focused on helping them to learn composure, improvisation, and delivery. A great many of my students have gone on to incredible levels of success in WWE, due to their ability to speak to crowds. Not only did I work with the Superstars in WWE, I have also guided others not so accustomed to public speaking: corporate types, administrators, government officials and more. My track record is unique, and you can check out my successes each week, as I've worked with almost everyone on the WWE roster. I look forward to helping you master the art of public speaking.

Someone that wants to teach public speaking must have real experience in front of crowds. Not only did I work with the WWE Superstars on their communication, but I was also the ring announcer and commentator for WWE's Developmental broadcasts from 2008-2012. I've performed in front of crowds as big as 15,000 people, and as small as 30. I know the tension, nervousness, excitement and adrenaline that goes through your veins when it's time to get in front of a group of people. I also know how to learn to control your emotions and your body in such situations.

You can't wrap your head around something until you've been in the trenches doing it. My practical knowledge and theory on film and video production is partially based on my college education, but more importantly based on my experience working on film and TV shoots. I've done everything behind the camera: writing, producing, directing, editing, etc., and I've done it all in a time-sensitive environment.

If you want to conquer the ways of public speaking, I'm more than ready to get you there. We will go on an adventure together, and unlock the potential you have to command a room. Public speaking can be intimidating, but we will learn to make it work for you.
