Make Stories Matter
MATTHEW TAYLOR award-winning author, professional actor, storyteller and humorist has been entertaining audiences throughout the United States and internationally for the last twenty-five years.
Transplanted to Colorado from the small sailing village of Itchenor, England, Matthew is a partner of A.C.E. Entertainment, which has written and produced over fifty original shows, and is currently touring their smash hit, Girls Only – The Secret Comedy of Women.
Encouraged from the popularity of the A.C.E. show, Tales of an Englishman, Matthew continued to commit his stories to paper, which have now been compiled into the book, Goat Lips: Tales of a Lapsed Englishman. Released in the spring of 2015, Goat Lips has received the 2015 Independent Publishers Book Awards Gold Medal for Humor and is a National Indie Excellence Award Finalist.
Matthew has a long history of coaching theater, storytelling, and the art of improvisation. He formed Persuasion through Narrative in 2010 to teach communication skills through the use of narrative and has quickly gained a strong reputation, especially within the legal profession and educational institutions.
Matthew loves to bike, ski, sail, and is proud to be a husband and a father of two fabulous children (who continually keep him on his toes and laughing constantly).
