Matt Stabile is a storyteller who began studying theatre at the age of 12. A native of Miami, he was fortunate enough to attend schools with magnet programs for the arts including the prestigious New World School of the Arts. His passion for theatre took him to Southern Methodist University's Meadows School of the Arts where he chose to take on a triple emphasis in Playwriting, Directing, and Scenic Design. In 2000, he received his BFA from SMU and was named a recipient of the prestigious Rosenbaum Award for Playwriting. After a brief stint of improv and historical re-enactments in Philadelphia, he returned to South Florida in 2004. A new passion and career path opened to him when he began assisting teaching artists in Educational Outreach Workshops with Fantasy Theatre Factory. Soon after, Matt was invited to join the faculty at G-Star School of the Arts, the nation's largest high school for Film & Television. Last year, after seven years in the classroom, he left his position as Chair of the Acting Department to pursue his artistic career on a full-time basis. Outside the classroom, he still strives to bring innovative, and educational theatre to the South Florida Community with several companies including: The Theatre at the Arts Garage and his own company, Take Heed Theater.

Recent forays into the world of film and television have brought me great satisfaction and success. My writing partner, Jeff Bower, and I were thrilled to recently be named one of the finalists in the iO West Live Pilots Series. Our reading of our original pilot BABY NOT ON BOARD was smash success and we are seeking to further develop the project.

Whether as an actor, director, teacher, or writer, I've spent my life trying to recapture that feeling of flying past "the second star to the right and straight on 'til morning."
