KILL HANNAH:
While attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1996, Mat founded and fronted the alternative band, Kill Hannah. The band developed a die-hard local following as the result of a relentless show schedule, and years of grass-roots promotion, including the organization of a hyper-loyal and weaponized street team.

Kill Hannah toured globally for 10 years, releasing 5 full length albums on Atlantic Records, Universal /Motown, and Roadrunner Records.

WRONGCHILDE:
In 2013, Mat founded an independent record label and executed an innovative crowdfunding campaign (Top 5% highest-grossing on Pledge Music) to finance the release of his first solo project, Wrongchilde.

The debut album, Gold Blooded, featured a duet with Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) as well as collaborations with members of Morrissey, M83, and White Sea. He produced music videos for seven of the songs, securing premieres on MTV, Vice, Billboard, Nylon and NME.

BROADWAY:
In 2010, Mat was cast in a lead role on the highest-budget Broadway production in history: Spiderman, Turn Off the Dark.
Directed by Julie Taymore, all music written by Bono and The Edge, of U2.

CAMEO:
Starting in 2018, Mat currently is the Head of Music Partnerships at CAMEO, one of Time Magazine's 50 Genius Companies; Fast Company's #1 Most Innovative Startup, and #1 fastest growing social marketplace in the world.
Referred to as "the modern autograph", 42,000+ celebrities are currently using Cameo.It is considered a disruptor in the music industry, because in an age where record sales are non-existent, (and ESP when touring is prohibited) their app allows artists to directly monetize engagement with their biggest fans.
To use Cameo, an artist sets their price ($1-$10,000), which the fans pay in exchange for a short personalized video shout-out. Snoop Dogg has earned $2M in his first year, while many other artists are making $10k-$40k monthly.
Some of the artists currently on Cameo include Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Akon, Tyga, Portugal the Man, The Struts, Mandy Moore, Jordin Sparks, Macy Gray, Ne-yo, Juicy J
