  • Description

    Hello! My name is Matt, I’m from the Los Angeles Area in California! I am currently taking a gap year from university to travel and write!

    I am very outgoing and enjoy socializing with people from all backgrounds, but also enjoy quiet time removed from the constant hustle of the world for self reflection and relaxation. I am definitely happiest out in nature and the countryside!

    I have always enjoyed outdoor activities, especially extreme sports, including rock climbing, parachuting, motorcycle riding, spelunking, snowboarding, surfing, flying airplanes, and so much more!

    I am hard working, adventurous, and driven to experience all that I can in life! I am hoping to learn as much as I can about other cultures as I can in the next year, as well as share about where I’m from!

    I look forward to talking to you soon!

    • Allergies
      I have a mild allergy to some breeds of dogs and cats, but usually this mild allergy is not a problem

    • Special dietary requirements
      I can eat anything, but I had a stomach ulcer about a year ago, so my appetite comes and goes sometimes. I also try to limit my consumption of alcohol if symptoms arise.
