In that time he has earned a national writing credit for his work on the History Channel series Top Secret Missions of the CIA and has also produced dozens of long form projects for regional corporations.
In 2007 Matt joined South Carolina Educational Television where he shoots and produces a variety of projects. In 2010 his historical documentary, Incident at Mars Bluff garnered a regional EMMY award.
