Matthew has tirelessly searched for creative inspiration on a journey that has taken him to the ends of the earth and led to creative collaborations with some of its most compelling storytellers. After working for the Magnum Photos agency and a stint as an assistant to conflict photographer James Nachtwey, he sought to expand his experience into the realm of documentary film. Matthew spent much of the last five years shooting documentary content around the world for Vice Magazine’s, VBS.TV. He also participated in the MTV travelogue series THE VICE GUIDE TO EVERYTHING, shooting segments on location in Japan, Liberia, and Brazil that included the opportunity to work with director Spike Jonze in Yemen.
