Matthew is a Chicago native who studied both film and game design at DePaul University who started his own freelancing business back in 2012 under Tropical Comet Media Inc. Under that name, he has worked on various projects around his local communities ranging from community events, live shows, music videos, documentaries, promotional material, and other various web-based content. He is also a FAA certified drone pilot under Section 107 in order to perform aerial photography and videography for commercial purposes.

Whether it is for a client or one of his own personal projects, he always aims to bring an enjoyable mindset to both his work and his collaborators, as well as looking for new methods to enhance both his creativity and efficiency with each project. He also owns his own equipment and workstations for use as part of his business that fit into his workflow as well as the necessary travel from location to location.

While Matthew always liked to mess around with the home video camera his family owned at an early age, it wasn't until his second year of high school where he wanted to start a potential career in film. His love for both technology and all forms of media initially geared him towards post-production, and while that is still his desired focus, he has been able to greatly enjoy various roles of both live and on-set production especially in terms of operating cameras and audio equipment. As Matthew strives to move his independent career forward, he hopes to learn even more as well as share his experiences and knowledge with all sorts of other individuals and organizations, both in and out of the industry.
