Currently Matthew enjoys the best of both worlds, creating world class projects for both public and private events, both in the studio and in the live concert world.

Matthew has a long-term working relationship with record producer David Foster, with duties in various capacities including music/show/production director, co-producing the musical portion of events, conducting live shows, arranging charts for shows, direct interaction with artists to prepare productions and musical needs for their performances, rehearsing orchestras, choirs and rhythm sections, supervising all music and production preparation for the show, stage designs, show flows, schedules, takedowns, etc. Together Matthew and David have done hundreds of shows, including corporate events for fortune 500 companies, high end private events, charity events, and concerts all over the world—working in traditional public venues to the most unusual private production circumstances.
