Originially from Pittsburgh, where he spent his formative years, Matt always knew he’d end up in NYC. Matt travelled to several U.S. cities for professional opportunities in the arts before settling into the Big Apple in 2013, and his ability to thrive in fast-paced settings led him straight into the recruiting world! Having always dreamt of living in the city that never sleeps, NYC set the stage for him to develop his business acumen. Matt has grown into a Senior Account Executive within Clarity’s temporary division. Prior to Clarity, Matt cultivated his strengths in account management while working for a leading NYC hospitality staffing firm. This is where is passion for building better teams began, which further blossomed once he settled in at Clarity in 2015. He brings a keen attention to detail, commitment to achieving results, and a natural ability to empathize to all client and candidate scenarios.

Matt recieved his BFA from Wright State University’s Professional Actor Training Program (PATP), and when he’s not recruiting, he is pursuing his other great passion, the performing arts. The rest of Matt’s free time is spent with his family, friends, and cats whilst enjoying home cooked meals, exploring new wines, and snowboarding.
