ABOUT

Born in Memphis, TN, raised in Raleigh, NC and living in Brooklyn, NY, Matt is fostering his craft at Final Cut where he works as Assistant Editor. 

Matt studied Film & Digital Art at Elon University. He began his career at a small-town indie record label producing content for over 40 artists and 6 labels. Since then he has worked in a variety of spaces — a startup production outfit, higher education, the wedding space, client services and advertising.

Matt ate seven life-changing tacos at Tacombi, watched La La Land and endured a relapse of teenage angst, which together resulted in an uproot from his hometown to the big apple. He was welcomed in by The Mill before joining Uppercut where he assisted Danielle Sclafani, before joining Final Cut in August 2018.
