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.

He likes to explore small intimacies in his work, often trying to convey a deeper sense of emotional life in an attempt to capture the tangible. This year Matthew has 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”.
