About Matthew

Bay Area born and raised. I attended film school in my grandmother's family room until I was eighteen - she had stolen HBO and would let me rent rated-R movies from Hollywood Video so it was a well-rounded education.

After years of longing for the embrace of Southern California, I made it down to Los Angeles to hopefully realize Eddie O'Brien's (OUATIH) words and not just be passing through.

I have experience working in the studio system, working in legal and content licensing departments that brought me closer to the processes of production and distribution. This last year of craziness has been spent focusing on screenwriting and expanding my catalogue of projects in the feature and short form categories.
