After making films through his teens, Matt decided to pursue his interest in computers. Convinced that it was the safer road, he started several companies and worked as a sought after software engineering expert.

Realizing that there’s risk in everything we do, and seeing the impending convergence of film and technology, Matt decided the time was right to pursue his first love, film making. Drawing on his passion for classic stories such as “Le Morte D’Arthur” and Greek Mythology, he is always looking for stories that connect us through universal insights.

His work explores change, renewal and growth with his ultimately optimistic view.

He's studied Directing with Judith Weston (Los Angeles), Michael Mabbot (Toronto) and acting with Theresa Sears and David Switzer.

He recently completed his Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) in Directing at the prestigious American Film Institute (AFI Conservatory) in Los Angeles, California.

Matt's thesis film "Bosco's Guitar" has won numerous awards including the College Television Award for Drama (also known as the Student Emmy).

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream."
Mark Twain
