MATTHEW "MATT" M.
Dreaming, Meticulous, Speculative
"I don’t dream at night, I dream at day, I dream all day; I’m dreaming for a living."
- Steven Spielberg
Prior to becoming a filmmaker and urban dancer, Matt took classes in ballet, judo, and wushu and participated in many performances with San Jose Ballet, got second place in nationals in judo, and received many first places in wushu competitions. Matt transitioned from ballet into urban hip hop and joined his first ever urban hip hop team, Gobstoppers, in 2015. He then joined another urban hip hop team, APT, in 2018, and competed with them on the stage of NYCDA, a national dance competition. During his years of urban hip hop, Matt found a passion in film-making and runs a YouTube channel with over ten thousand subscribers where he posts dance videos, short films, and a small web series. Matt has also been behind the scenes for every Homecoming video and continues to hone his skills with each video.
