Matthew basically spends most of his time hauling all his camera gear into the mountains to create interesting and inspiring films. 4 years of school for filmmaking and 8 years of experience creating films independently has set him up perfectly for his role at Kaci. When he is not in the mountains he is editing massive amounts of footage into videos. The film he is most proud of is the Himalayan Life Annual Review, “but I expect that to be overshadowed in the future.”
“I love working for Kaci and filmmaking because I get to work from home when I'm editing, then I’m often out somewhere exotic when I'm filming”.
In another life, I'm pretty sure I was: A fiction author. Lack of patience makes that occupation quite difficult.
If you won the lottery tomorrow? I'd start an Animation company. I can't draw or animate, but if I can just tell talented artists what I want something to look like? That would be marvellous.
The best piece of advice you’ve been given? Leave the weak, trample the dead. Joking. My dad always said, "kick butt, take name". This basically amounts to "strive to overcome whatever you're facing in life, and make it known".
If you could invent a holiday? It would involve skiing, and if I had time, more skiing. Maybe with a helicopter, preferably in Japan or Alaska. A sauna and a beer for the evenings.
What advice would you give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars? Kick butt, take name.
