Matthew's undergraduate degree was in creative writing and film studies, and it was a film studies tutor that recommended he try applying for the National Film and Television school.  He was accepted onto the Directing and Producing Television Entertainment course and once he was accepted he went on the search for extra credits as a runner to prepare for the course.  His first runner jobs were working on shows like ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ and John Bishop’s ‘Back of the Net’ on Amazon Prime,  When Matthew started at the NFTS he wasn't sure which area of Television Entertainment he wanted to get into, but the course allowed him to try out multiple genres, such as gameshow, comedy drama, live magazine formats and factual entertainment.
