Matt was born in the Deep South of Georgia, U.S.A. in 1982 but was raised in the far north wilderness of Minnesota where he grew up hunting, fishing, hiking, drawing and drumming. After graduating with honours in the Arts from Saint Francis Senior High School in the class of 2000, he travelled the American pioneer landscape eventually settling in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

There he graduated with degrees in Illustration and Graphic Arts from Kalamazoo Valley Community College and began what would be a life-long dedication to Mixed Martial Arts training. Returning to Minnesota to work as an illustrative designer, he graduated from Minneapolis Community and Technical College with a degree in Web Design. It was during this return to Minnesota that Matt began studying the Occult.

In 2010 Matt moved to London, United Kingdom and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Asia. In London, Matt shifted his focus to film and sequential illustration and began training Historical European Martial Arts with a focus on Great Sword combat. In 2019 Matt was diagnosed with a stage two lymph cancer and underwent a year of treatment from which he fully recovered. Matt continues to train Martial Arts and currently works as a Designer and Illustrator in London.

Matt’s artwork and film production is heavily influenced by the Occult and Western Mystery Traditions. His stories and illustrations draw from shamanism, European paganism and the study of ancient mystery schools.
