In 1997 I went to see “Boogie Nights” in a movie theater. Little did I know it was a prophetic sign.
Six months later I found myself living the real Boogie Nights for the next 15 years.
I am an American webpreneur, photographer, director and producer based in Los Angeles, California.
I’m best known as a pioneer of Internet amateur porn.
In 1999 I started a website called “Matt’s Models” it has since been recognized by the Adult Industry as a leader in it’s genre.
Matt’s Models was one of the first “amateur pornography” Adult Web Sites.
Much of the initial growth stemmed from word of mouth and stolen / shared photos on free outlets like “Newsgroups”.
The site became commonly known by the adult industry and Internet surfers as one of the first stops for nude models and aspiring Porn Stars.
- In 2006 Matt’s Models was ranked “Best Over Adult Site” by The Best Porn
- In 2007 Matt’s Models was nominated for “Site of the Year” by Xbiz.com
- In 2007 I signed a DVD distribution deal with Vivid Entertainment Group.
- In 2007 Xbiz Awards Third Place “Best Adult Site on the Web”
- In 2008 AVN Awards Nominee “Best Pro Am Series”
- In 2009 AVN Awards Nominee “Best Pro Am Series”
I’ve been interviewed by Fox News for segments on Stickam.com, Xanga.com and Youtube.com. I’ve also been interviewed on Playboy Radio.
In 2009 I hosted Matt’s Models 10-Year Anniversary Party at the Key Club on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Hosts and guests included veteran actor Ron Jeremy, mainstream filmmaker Adam Rifkin , rock star / adult director Dave Navarro, rock star Peter Distefano of Porno for Pyros, the all-girl Pajamaband, featuring Jayme Langford and Jana Jordan plus a bevy of Porn Stars.
In 2011 I abruptly left the industry. Since then I’ve had a compulsion to write a book about my experience in Porn. I feel an obligation to fans and haters and in the defense of producing pornography in general.
