Born in Redhill, England, Matthew Brindle left for London at fifteen. From being involved with the internet, online chatrooms and profiles from as early as twelve years old Matthew became aware of personal online profiles and the escapism they can give from a very early age.
Throughout his teens Matthew experimented further with various online identities. Part creation, part self-realisation and part asperation these identities gave an intimate online glipse into the life of a modern youth growing up. While many usernames and ‘selves’ where created during Matthew’s transition to an adult, only one was as fully realised and notorious as ‘SkullBoy’.
