Matt grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in northwest North Carolina, where hunting wasn't just a hobby, but more of a way of life. His father forged his passion and love for the outdoors and whitetails at an early age, and it fueled his desire to take it a step further. Matt began filming professionally as a freelance cameraman for several Drury Outdoors team members in 2005, while making several appearances on the hit TV series Bow Madness on the Outdoor Channel and several Drury Outdoors DVD's. He continued this role until 2010 when he and Jason Bowers were selected as full time cast members for Dream Season: Workin' Man on the Outdoor Channel. In 2012, the entire cast branched out and founded a new hit TV series Whitetail Fix on Sportsman Channel. Matt served as Co-Host, Owner, President & CEO of Whitetail Fix for seven years. Matt is now the newest member of Red Rising and has never felt more welcomed or at home. Matt currently works as a Mortgage Banker for Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group.
