Matthew T. Price grew up in Michigan, studied cinema at USC, and met his future wife in Maine. He followed her to her home country of New Zealand, where he convinced her to marry him. Matthew has worked in television for ten years, while shooting short films on the side. He made his first feature film and first daughter in the same year. The movie's pretty good, but he's even more proud of his daughter, who already knows the alphabet. Exchange Students is very loosely based on his time in New Zealand.
