Matthew's introduction to film came through 3 DVD rentals every Friday night from his local Blockbuster video store, where he was exposed to the joys of cinema from a young age.

Currently enjoying the exploration of relationships through his work, Matthew tries to convey larger emotional concepts through small and meaningful moments. Last year Matthew won VOTD three times for his work, including his graduation film True Strength. His Super 8mm film Urban Youth also made the Official Straight 8 London Selection 2017, which premiered at the Picturehouse Central.

The Beak Street Bugle recently featured him on their list of unsigned directors, calling him “one to watch”.
