Matthew was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, where he grew up in a denominational church that left him hungry for something more. After first encountering Jesus at the age of 17, he began walking down a path that would lead him to Mobile, Alabama. He has traveled around the world as a photographer and videographer to create dynamic imagery for many bands, brands, and documentaries. Today, Matthew serves as the media director for Awakening Evangelism, the BASE Evangelism Training Course, and Mattie Montgomery Ministries. Matthew desires to see the church reign in the original expression of the arts as righteous sons and daughters.
