Matt left the 9-5 corporate grind in 2017 to explore his passion for kayaking and the outdoors. He caught the bug in 2015 after relocating to White Salmon, Washington. He is a Wilderness First Responder, ACA kayak instructor, and Whitewater Rescue Technician. Matt discovered his call to teaching while volunteering with First Descents, and is excited to share his stoke on kayaking with as many people as possible. When he is not paddling he can be found lounging in his hammock on a multi-day kayaking trip, mountain biking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, or riding his touring bike. He also enjoys reading, creative writing, music and learning new skills whenever he can.
Join Matt on one of Wet Planet’s kayak courses this season!
