From Ohio to Hollywood! Barbizon of Akron Graduate Matt Coffey Stays Busy Out In Hollywood!

Barbizon of Akron graduate & listed with Pro-Model & Talent Management, Matt Coffey from Uniontown, Ohio is someone who truly has the best of both worlds! During the school year Matt resides in Ohio where he is in close contact with Pro-Model & Talent Management for local assignments, then once summer hits, Matt and his mom, Jodie Coffey, are off to Los Angeles! For 3 months during the summer Matt packs his bags and jets off to Los Angeles with his mom where his management team, Rising Talent, and Agent, HRI are hard at work getting Matt out for auditions and assignments.

This last trip to LA, Matt shot a commercial for Disney XD that can be seen on YouTube and on the Disney XD channel. Then he was off to the fabulous beaches of California to shoot some hoops for a WSS Shoe Warehouse commercial that you can see by logging onto and clicking the YouTube link.

While Matt tends to stay very busy while in LA, he still finds time to play between projects. Before heading back to Ohio, Matt was able to squeeze in some surfing lessons! This definitely was not a trip of all work and no play, but he sure did stay busy!
