Matt has lived the overland and 4×4 lifestyle since he had a driver's license. Now calling the Pacific Northwest home, the Cascades serve as a substitute for the Appalachians of his childhood. During a stint in the Rockies, he tackled almost every 4×4 trail in Colorado while coordinating volunteer efforts to maintain and repair trails there. An ecologist by training, he eventually traded in deer skulls for the 4×4 industry. Adventures (and work) have taken him from Moab, to the Mojave, and across the Australian outback.
