Seldom do people behind the camera get the chance to be in front of the camera, let alone steal the show from the famous stars of the show. Nevertheless, it happens, and we can’t appreciate those moments enough. One man who was able to achieve this is Matthew Anderson, the man behind the camera in the hit Travel Channel series The Dead Files.’

Also, eventually, learn what most of you came here in the first place, Matthew Anderson’s married and dating life are also in here. You will be surprised to meet his girlfriend.

Matthew Anderson’s Net Worth & Salary

Matthew Anderson’s net worth and salary mostly stem from his career with ‘The Dead Files.’ He has been a part of the show since its inception in 2011.

Even a simple camera operator can make a salary of almost $27k a year, and Cameramen in the USA make nearly $70k annually on average. Of course, he is still with the show, but we do not know why but perhaps he now is considered a co-host of the show. It may be the reason why he does not have any credits since 2016.

By that estimation, Matthew Anderson must make a handsome salary, only for his profession, but we all know that he is not a cameraman of an ordinary show. We certainly would not sign up to shoot around scary haunted locations. Neither can we forget that Matthew Anderson has a notoriety of almost a reality star, he is more popular than any other cameramen from the show after all.

So that must reflect in his salary, which enables him to make his net worth, which is approximately $800,000. He has been active even after leaving The Dead Files, so we don’t expect his net worth to have been adversely affected in any way. He is the owner and Founder of EMMA Enterprises and also works at The Repercussionist Comic book as a creator, writer, and artist.

Matthew Anderson has a long love for comic books, mainly about Godzilla and also is the Author and Illustrator of the comic book series ‘The Carver and the Assassin. Compiling both his net worth in reality TV and comic books, some sources have even put his net worth at $3 million and projecting it to reach sums of $20 million. However, Anderson learned about it himself and made sarcastic fun of it on his Facebook page.

Matthew Anderson celebrates his birthday in early October, but we do not know the exact date of his birth, so there is no way of telling his age. He was born to mother, Carol Anderson Delos Santos, and the name of his birth-father is unknown. His mother remarried his step-father Bobby Delos Santos when he was just a young boy.

Anderson’s step-father, who currently works at The Home Depot and does wood arts, is of Philippines ethnicity.
