Matt is originally from New Jersey, USA. His father was an avid traveler, fisherman and amateur photographer and one of the main factors that led Matt into photography and the ocean.
Growing up at the beach Matt taught himself how to surf. A good friend of his ended up on a world surfing circuit and they teamed up to create an international surf/bodyboard video around the turn of the millennium. This project and its travels brought Matt to California, Mexico and to Hawaii in search of waves and kickstarted his journey in ocean visuals.
