Matt was born in Sweden, raised in London. From an early age, Matt was exposed to a number of cultures and later on developed a passion for Chinese language and culture.

Having attended the University of Exeter, Matt obtained a BA in French and Mandarin Chinese. During this 4-year degree Matt lived in Beijing for a year, where he attended Tsinghua University as an exchange student.

As an intrepid traveller, Matt isn’t afraid to take on new challenges and he finds that the best way to assimilate a culture is to immerse yourself in it. In his spare time, you can find Matt taking photographs at painstakingly early hours of the morning to capture the seldom seen silence of big cities.
