After graduating college in 2006, Matthew worked as a set lighting technician for feature films and major commercials in the Pittsburgh, PA area as well as serving as Director of Worship Arts for a multi-campus church in the city. In 2008 he became a full-time director for a video production company in Pittsburgh. He later took over as the head of production and guided every project from idea to delivery.
