Matt documented his travels to an array of different countries throughout several continents

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 6 April, 2017 - Whist exploring the world as a young man, Matt travelled to an array of different countries on different continents, recording his experiences with film and pen.

On his travels, but a lot closer to home, Matt found Ireland and with it great friends, great waves and a home he would eventually return to. He then spent several years at sea sailing here and there, living on instinct, a sense of adventure and becoming a captain and able sea man, before finding his way back to Ireland and a more settled life.

Along with a group of friends, he helped start up community farming and tree planting projects, and co-founded the surf magazine, Backwash. He left wind behind and is now on a journey of reconnection and rewilding, he is rooted to the land in Ireland and dedicated to the waves.
