“I grew up in Southern California skateboarding by day and racing BMX by night. Most mornings I spent at the beach surfing or bodyboarding before school, always with an eye on the weather in case I needed to skip out early to hit the coast.

After high school I worked my way through the University of California Irvine as a rock climbing instructor and while I was finishing my degree in psychology and social behavior with a minor in film I worked technical rope and cave search and rescue for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department.

After college my attentions shifted to snowboarding, skydiving and B.A.S.E jumping. I instructed freestyle and all mountain snowboarding for Vail Corp. and still instruct skydiving from time to time at Perris Valley Skydiving Center. In the more recent years I’ve jumped from one extreme community to the next pursuing my ultimate goal of collaborating with other like minded extreme athletes to create projects that have the potential to change how people see the world. I make a living as a professional extreme sports athlete and commercial stuntman traveling the globe looking for the next adventure. ” – Matts bio on
