Matt Corriel cares deeply about finding just the right words and sounds to express an idea.  It's a passion that has steered both his songwriting and his legal practice.  He's the composer/lyricist of hundreds of songs and a half dozen musicals, including his newest work, Foster, and his magnum opus, Emcee MC's Tales to D.C. Town.  He practices law as an associate with Ropes & Gray in New York, and was formerly a faculty fellow at Penn Law, a clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals, and an associate with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.  The biggest thrills of his life include writing and performing a song for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, getting married at Walt Disney World, and every day with his children, Georgia and Jackson.  Matt is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School and a member of the Dramatists Guild.
