Having originally studied graphic design and photography, Matt got his break in the film industry working as an assistant director and production manager on a raft of commercials, music promos and features. After shooting a number of test spots, he made the jump into directing after being commissioned to write and direct ‘Trimming The Fat’, a short for BBC Films. This lead to him signing with Outsider where he worked for five years shooting films for clients such as Barclays, Vodafone, The Sun, Budweiser, Samsung and Fiat. He has collaborated with many agencies at home and abroad including BBH, Ogilvy NY, Krow, MullenLowe, Grey, WCRS, Special Group Sydney, The Viral Factory and AMV BBDO.

Matt has worked across many disciplines, from shooting indigenous tribes in the jungles of Tanzania to playing video games with elephants in Thailand, he loves the thrill of the challenge, riding into the unknown. Pushed for a preference, his heart really lies with writing and directing comedic actors. Over a number of shorts and commercials he has proven that he has a great eye for casting comedic roles and drawing out fantastic performances. An incredibly collaborative director, he loves nothing more than digging in to find the best way of telling a story.
