About Matthew

I have enjoyed the art of editing ever since high school. My friends and I would spend entire days filming movies just for fun. We would often create parodies of our favorite films at the time (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Matrix), and I would get to edit everything together with a very primitive Windows Movie Maker. It was here where I first learned the basics of storytelling and how music and effects can enhance a film.
I increased my skills in college, earning a degree in film at the State University of Oswego. Since then, I have edited hundreds of short projects be they highlights of weddings, Kickstarter videos, or personal vlogs of my own camping trips into the wilderness . There is something innately exciting about the way a single edit can powerfully change the course of a story, and I have a ball blending the cuts into a unified whole.

Unique traits: Scuba Diver, Backpacker, Nature Photographer
