Matt McVay is from the four-stoplight town of Harbor Oregon, where he grew up bailing hay, digging ditches, and canning tuna. In-between birthing calves, Matt developed a taste for fine comic books, community theater & local radio.
Soon after graduation, Matt became the in-house videographer and on-camera reporter for The Olympian newspaper in Washington state. After two years of staving off the slow and painful death of print, he finally took an agreeable severance package and decided it was time to move to L.A. and become an Actor / Writer.
Fully embracing the cliché, he slept on the floor of a Culver City studio apartment and began waiting tables immediately. Matt wrote furiously in those days, often working till 6 or 7 o'clock at night. He wrote many films and plays, one play was actually horribly produced and one screenplay was actually read by Academy Award winning filmmaker, Paul Haggis' assistant.
Currently, Matt is finishing up a series of bathrobe rants about sci-fi logic, a puppet coming-of-age story, and a feature about magic trees. In his spare time, he can be found teaching children how to fight with sword as Obi Wan.
Matt is a rabid reader of comic books and blogs about comic books. In addition to buying discounted holiday candy at the drugstore, he also enjoys drive-thu hamburgers and falling asleep to reruns of 30 Rock.

Matt currently lives in Burbank, and is probably looking for a parking space at this very moment.
