Five broken arms, a fractured femur, sixty two stitches and a puncture wound to the groin from being shot by an arrow at an 8th grade history excursion. By the age of 13, Matt’s life of adventure and curiosity was starting to take it’s toll.
Just as well he’s a fast learner. By his late 20’s Matt had surfed, sailed and dived across the globe, finished a degree in environmental science, worked on films and been plucked from a pile of documentary researcher resumes to become an international science and adventure reporter for National Geographic and Discovery. Turning his curiosity into his career and the unique understanding of the world and people around him that’s led from it into his tools.
Today, Matt has more than 18 years experience in TV and film across all genres and a list of directing, writing and producing credits as long as your arm.
He’s written feature films, directed shows for three of the past four Shark Weeks on Discovery, made acclaimed shorts for the likes of the Al Gore Live Earth events and EP’d and Show-run successful commercial factual series from Thailand to outback Australia.
The broken bones heal. The curiosity it seems, is a work in progress.
