Matt, was great to work with on Life and Death Row. A great shooter, highly organised, dedicated, extremely hard working and good company too throughout. Filming an extremely demanding story and covering huge distances in Texas he was completely reliable and delivered to an exceptionally high standard. I look forward to working with Matt again.
