After starring in his third Mighty Ducks film, Matthew walked away from a life of glitz and glamour to study writing and theater at Northwestern University.

A Nicholl Academy Screenplay Semi-Finalist, Golden Voice Quarter finalist, AFF second rounder, Screencraft and Final Draft Big Break Semi Finalist, former moderator of a storied L.A. Writer’s lab, and NYFRINGE alum, he has ghost-written for Academy Award nominated directors, works as a story consultant, and facilitates writing groups in residential treatment facilities. His work has been read at The Antaeus Theater’s Lab Series, for IAMA, Rogue Machine, VS, The Road, Sacred Fools, and the famed Actor’s Studio.

His HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET was named finalist for BPP Woodward Newman award and PERSUASION advanced into later round consideration with Berkley Rep’s Ground Floor. Recently, BROTHERS PLAY debuted in Los Angeles, produced by Break With Tradition and directed by James Eckhouse. You can find him in the mountains, on skates, or cheering on his beloved White Sox. @archiedohman
