About Matthew: In the seven years that I have been a part of the creative industry, I have learnt many lessons, but none more important than understanding the importance of community. If we give more than we take, greatness can be achieved with the surplus.
Reason for being involved in workshop: I was invited to be a mentor. I accepted because I believe diversity isn't just the future, it's the present—yet it's still being overlooked. I accepted because I want to help support this movement in whatever way I can.
