Matthew Ip Shaw is an actor, director, and producer from Vancouver, Canada, with over ten years of experience in the entertainment industry. He has a background in the arts that is diverse and eclectic. His credits range from performing in front of the camera, on stage, or behind a mic, to backstage and behind the scenes work in both theatre and film.

He also has extensive experience in fight choreography: performing fights in prestigious venues such as the Metropolitan Opera House, teaching students at the Circle in the Square Theatre School, and conducting many Broadway Classroom Workshops.
A lover of astrology, one of Matt's favorite myths is the Myth of Oisín and the land of eternal youth. In this tale, our main character forgets an important piece of information that leads to his death. What an unlucky turn of events!
If lost, Matt is often found soaking up the sun in the oddest locations, sometimes enjoying a refreshing Old Fashioned.
