Who Am I?
Welcome, I am Matt, a freelance writer & author.
As a freelance writer, I have worked on a variety of publications both online and offline. I have created content for technology sites using my experience working in the tech industry for many years. My focus is within Windows, Linux, Privacy and Android. I have also worked as an Industrial Editor for a farming publication.
They say variety is the spice of life but read on to learn more about me.
My writing journey began at school. I enjoyed English and seemed to have a natural aptitude for language. Afterwards I studied at college and in particular broadened my education within Media. After college, I worked full time, but there was an itch.
The itch was creativity. Working in a button down corporate environment wasn’t for me.
After a year, I decided to study film at University.
University was a unique experience. Student life provided a way to explore both myself and my subject. The course was geared toward, ‘film as art.’ At the time, I struggled to grasp this, or at least I found, ‘art’ in my own way. Whilst the lecturers were looking for the next Lynne Ramsay, my approach was coming from my love of Horror. It was never going to win accolades but I had to stay true to myself. Horror is art, and this belief led me to the Italian Giallo sub-genre.
My dissertation was on the Italian director, Dario Argento and once I saw Tenebrae on TV, I was hooked. It was a shift away from the American eighties Horror I watched as a child on well worn VHS rentals where directors like Wes Craven and George A Romero let me cut my teeth on killers and zombies.
Post University, I used this inspiration to make my own short films, some of which were nominated at International Film Festivals.
Now, under the name MD Muller, I am an author. My Horror literary style is reminiscent of Clive Barker as I admire his exploration of the taboo. I have also ventured into Science Fiction following the inspiration of Philip K Dick, Alan Watts and Terence McKenna with the novel, ‘The Man Who Knew Everything.’
