You can't wait for inspiration.
You have to go after it with a club, a video camera, a microphone, a stills camera, video editing software, animation tools, web development skills, a skateboard or surfboard.

I write, film, record, edit, design, code, create and destroy things. Crazy things.

"The only way to get rid of my fears is to make films about them." –– Hitchcock

Hi, I'm Matt.

A self-described "imaginator at large," I'm an experimental visual storyteller who has led video innovation at both the BBC and NBC News. More practically, I'm a journalist, filmmaker and tinkerer and can often be found on the road crafting inventive and immersive tales.

I led the BBC's video innovation lab in London, jumpstarting documentary programs on television, online and through social media and have helped launch new websites and digital intiatives for the company.

More recently, I founded NBC Left Field, an experimental video unit and studio at NBC News aimed at toying with new technology, style and creative formats.

I've reported throughout Southeast Asia, Russia, Europe, Africa, India and North America.

In past lives, I worked at Discovery Channel, a Japanese newspaper and a Pennsylvania brewery.

One day I will leave storytelling behind to study social psychology and surf every darn day. But until then, come say hi or reach out via email here.
