Matīss was born in Liepāja - the city where the wind is born. Before becoming an actor, he has tried to learn many professions. After studying both multimedia art and metal product design at the Latvian Art secondary school, he completed hairdressing courses, but realized that neither computer work nor jewelry making or hair cutting will really do. After graduating from Liepāja Evening secondary school, he applied for Dramatic Theater Actor's Art Course specializing in puppet theater at the Latvian Academy of Culture and came to the Latvia Puppet Theater. Matīss says, “People and the time we spend together are most important in my life. So that over time, I have no regrets of the experience I have got!”
Actor of the Latvia Puppet Theater since 2019.
