Matt grew up in Walla Walla, WA and earned a degree in Electrical Engineering before deciding he didn’t want to sit at a desk anymore. He started guiding in 2017 at Smith Rock and has worked in the Pacific Northwest, California, and Nevada.
Spending time outside with like minded people is what brought Matt into guiding. If you're psyched to be out there, Matt is psyched to be out there with you. When not guiding you might find him pursuing some multi-modal mountain adventure, plotting for the next cool trip, or napping.
Matt holds a commercial pilots license with over 500 hours of experience. He lives in Leavenworth in the summers and Las Vegas in the winters with his girlfriend Samantha and their dog, Barnacle.
