Previously, as an entertainment lawyer, Matt, a co-author of the 7th Edition of This Business of Music, the bible of the music industry, has represented a variety of musical artists, songwriters, producers and record companies.  He appeared as a regular featured copyright expert on television and has lectured internationally.  An honors graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and a Cum Laude graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he edited and wrote for the Cardozo Law Review, Matt has also written several articles on music industry issues.  

A few years ago, Matt acted as Executive Producer of Certifiably Jonathan, a feature comedy film starring recently of late comedy icon Jonathan Winters.  The film features a host of other comedians including Robin Williams and Howie Mandel.  More recently, Matt dove into the world of finance with Stealth Traders, whose mission is to empower traders all over the world to achieve consistent profitability by creating the most accurate indicators and comprehensive education.
