About Matthew

A visual artist at heart. I take great pride in my writing and visualization down to the tiniest details. While in film school I was drawn in to the art of lighting for film under a very skilled and passionate teacher. Being in such a small school. I was brought on to many sets as Gaffer and very much enjoyed it.

Lighting skills aside, my true passion comes out in my writing and directing with short scripts and feature concepts pouring out of me on a very regular basis.

My goals in film are set for the stars as I hope to spend a lifetime crafting and perfecting my art.
