Matt has been performing professionally for over 15 years while also serving as a non-profit administrator for a variety of organizations just to keep things interesting. A highlight of his career includes performing for his grandmother starting at the age of 3, who lovingly called him her Court Jester. Currently he is the Executive Director of San Diego Dance Theater, teaches on faculty at Coronado School of the Arts, and is on the Steering Committee for the San Diego Regional Arts and Culture Coalition. Matt holds his BFA in Dance from the U. of MO-Kansas City’s Conservatory of Music and Dance and his Master in Public Administration from SDSU’s School of Public Affairs, Southern California’s premier urban research university, focusing on organizational development, fiscal analysis, and flow of communication. This is his seventh season with San Diego Ballet.
