I love stories.  I remember when I was probably about 6 years old, I was grocery shopping with my Momma, when I wandered off...again.  Sure enough, she found me in the middle of the pasta aisle chatting to some housewife and trying to make her a new friend.  From being an actor to getting my Masters in Clinical Psychology, I just love chatting people up and hearing what is special in their lives.

I think that's what I've been trying to do my whole life--make every stranger a friend and hear their story. There isn't a tale I've heard yet that hasn't motivated me, changed me, or just made me think.  So that's what my site is for--it's all things Matt & my love of stories. Whether it's listening to my stand-up, reading my blog, or asking for some advice on my weekly podcast, THE DEAR MATTIE SHOW, is a place for you to connect with me and be heard.
