Mathew never really actually thought about being or becoming a model. He has always been someone that has hated having their photo taken, so he would literally shy away from the camera. But after being given the contact details of a photographer he made a booking to build a model portfolio.
Mathew's key for fit and healthy looks is healthy diet and active lifestyle, not forgetting to include cheat meals to the diet every now and then to keep the balance. As a snack he prefers fruit salad. Mathew doesn't really like exercising indoors in the gym, he prefers cycling the bike routes by the beach, running the circuit around a hidden bushland gem in inner suburbia, swimming laps, and doing body weight / weight lifting.
Mathew's favourite piece of clothing is his black Burberry trench coat made from 100% gabardine. Although initially a military garment, it's classic, iconic and a style that doesn't date.
If Mathew could meet anyone in the world for dinner, he would choose his deceased Dido (grandfather). He was a father figure to Mathew who passed away in his teenage years. Mathew thinks it would be nice to sit back, relax, and have a bottle of Johnnie Walker with him, and then go and enjoy his favourite past time at the casino.
