Matt has devised numerous bestselling board games including “Obama Llama”, “Ansagrams”, “Egg Slam” and “Rainbow Rage”. His television production company (Accidentally on Purpose) has co-produced shows for BBC1, Channel 4, ITV2 and Comedy Central.
A keen magician himself, in 2017 Macmillan published Matt’s first book for children “The Greatest Magician in the World”. He is also in demand for brand work and has most recently been aligned with Natwest, Currys and Asmodee.
In 2020 Matt released his first song, “Your Car”, with vocals performed by Aymee Weir. Leaning in to his newly found love of music production, his podcast, “Not Another Love Song”, sees him collaborate with pop artists to create an album with song subjects as diverse and surreal as Hay Fever to Dishwashers.
