Matthew's love of writing began in primary school, where he wrote a series of detective stories and donated them to the school library (although, as you'd expect of detective stories written by a 10 year old, they featured a central hero who did very little detective work, and usually ended up throwing the primary antagonist into a pit of laval following a climactic battle on a cliff).
He studied Film and Media (specialising in screenwriting), and somehow managed to graduate despite having spent most of the time playing video games.
He has spent the past few years working for various Digital Marketing agencies (on a freelance and full-time basis), writing SEO and website copy on a wide range of topics including travel, information technology and real-estate. Unfrotunately, no one has yet hired him to write about dinosaurs.
