Matt is available forSenior producer and editor roles on narrative documentary podcasts
I'm an independent radio and podcast producer based in Portland, Maine. I've produced episodes and series for Crooked Media, Gimlet, The New York Times, Slate, Stitcher, Vox, and WNYC Studios, including shows like 544 Days, Land of the Giants, Sway, Freakonomics Radio, and Studio 360. My independent podcast, The Briny, tells sound-rich stories from the sea, and is part of the Hub and Spoke audio collective.
Previously, I was an associate producer for public radio’s Peabody Award winning arts and culture show Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen (WNYC + PRI). Before that, I was a features reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal. I hold master’s degrees in journalism (NYU) and English (McGill).
For 544 days, Jason Rezaian was held hostage in Iran’s notorious Evin prison. Interrogated. Sealed off from the outside world. He was accused of being an American spy, though his formal title was Washington Post Tehran Correspondent. This is a story about government and family and journalism, and what it took to free an innocent man… all while navigating the high-stakes world of nuclear diplomacy. I served as senior producer for this podcast from Gimlet, Crooked Media, and A24.
From its beginnings as a niche personal computer company, Apple became the preeminent maker of consumer tech products, a cultural trendsetter, and the most valuable company in the world. And along the way, it changed the way we live. I served as producer for this season of Land of the Giants, from Vox Media/Recode.
Edgar Allan Poe’s stories are so familiar they’ve become part of our cultural wallpaper. A raven croaking “nevermore?” An enemy bricked up in a cellar? A heart beating under the floorboards? These images are the stuff of our collective nightmares, but Poe dreamed them all up first. For Studio 360’s American Icons series, I produced this hour about Poe’s tales and the long shadow they’ve cast over popular culture.
The Briny is a podcast about how we're changing the sea, and how the sea changes us. The sea is the origin of life and stories: the white whale, the lost mariner, the sunken city. From shipwrecked fishermen to discoveries in marine biology, each episode of The Briny is a deep-dive into the stories that anchor us to the ocean. I report, produce, edit, mix, and host each episode of The Briny. The Briny is part of Hub & Spoke, a collective of independent podcasts.
