About Matthew

Matthew has worked professionally both onscreen and off in a variety of roles; such as screenwriter of the world’s first interactive sitcom (Suite 218.Com), producer and host of CTV’s The Best of BC, and made brief appearances on shows such as Disney's So Weird, Stargate SG-1 and Psych. In 2010, he wrote and directed the web-series Coyote Mountain, starring Jackie Blackmore and Drew Scott from The Property Brothers. "As a storyteller I’m drawn to stories that defy expectation, that challenge us emotionally, and equally enjoy exploring the subtle outrageousness of comedy as I do stories that gently expose the more heartbreaking sides of our humanity."
