About Matthew

Matthew discovered his interest in theatre and entertainment from an early age and started at NIDA after becoming more involved in amateur theatre productions. Since then, Matthew has studied and worked as a mechanist, rigger, and set builder at NIDA and in Sydney.
Matthew is excited about solving complex staging, rigging, and mechanical problems to make set designs come to life. This passion doesn’t lie only in theatre, he is looking forward to joining both live performance and film to learn, explore, and create in the performing arts industry.
