2Cousins Productions began planting the seeds for their screenplay ideas as far back as 2006. Matthew O’Connor and Glenn Jeffrey make up the 2Cousins Productions team and are, as the name implies, cousins who share the same passion for compelling and creative movie making. A robust pipeline of concepts and material continues to fuel their fire as they work towards perfecting their craft.

Matthew O’Connor graduated from Assumption College in 1998 with a degree in Communications. While there Matt studied Film Production and Theater Arts, and was a founding member of WACT, Assumption College’s first television station. He represented the television station as a producer, director, writer, actor, cameraman and editor. He was also largely involved with theater production at Assumption as an actor in several works, including Michael Frayn’s famous ‘Noises Off’. Matt is a native Rhode Islander who currently resides in Narragansett with his wife and three daughters.

Glenn Jeffrey graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 1991 with a degree in Clinical Psychology. While there Glenn began exploring various writing and communication classes. Following graduation Glenn began writing a series of short skits and eventually developed these into a 6-series half-hour comedy show titled ‘The Wrong Crowd’. The show aired locally in Rhode Island in 1996. During this same time he also created, produced and emceed a charity comedy show performance, enlisting local businesses as well as local comedians for the event. The show took place at the University of Rhode Island and all proceeds were donated to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital. While maintaining his work in human services and eventually pharmaceutical research management, Glenn continued to stoke his passion for writing. Glenn is also a native Rhode Islander residing in Cranston with his wife and two daughters.

Glenn and Matt have also appeared as extras in the locally produced writer/producer Laura Colella’s 1998 movie ‘Tax Day’. They are strong believers in the development of local industry artists and actively support their colleagues whenever possible.
