Before pursuing his love for media-making, Matthew held jobs as a primate researcher, veterinary technician, bindery worker, and noodle house dishwasher. He is a filmmaking multi-hyphenate dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. In 2008, he earned an Emmy nomination while working as a Supervising Producer / Editor at Current Television. In 2017, Matthew edited the Netflix Original “Joshua: Teenager Vs. Superpower,” a feature-length documentary that picked up the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival. With strong roots in editorial, Matthew brings a birds-eye-view perspective to the projects he tackles. He enjoys teaching others and has led workshops on the topics of media literacy and citizen journalism. From the jungles of Colombia to the playa at Burning Man, he feels lucky for all of the adventures his career has afforded him. He is always interested in meaningful projects and doubly interested if the project involves travel.
FUN FACT: His sixth-grade soprano voice can be heard on several tracks in the film Home Alone, which may be one of his biggest accomplishments…ever.
