Mat's Marvelous Adventures

Let's StartHere I am fitting in with the locals. For reasons unknown to me, these guys named their tribe the Mursi (pronounced more-see). I'm the sixth one from the right.My mission as the systems specialist is to reduce paper waste and increase office efficacy by automating tasks. The wall of dietary preferences was the first to go.People often ask how one becomes the IT guy for a travel company.  Here’s where it started for me.Once upon a time I was a commercial pilot. I've since moved on to a job that allows me to travel MORE. Here I am in a Russian Mig 25 flying up at 70,000ft.  The sky turns completely black up at that altitude.  The real lesson learned is that "you've never been lost until you've been lost traveling at 1,500 mph."I’ve always wanted a job that I can do from anywhere in the world.  However, rollercoaster designer didn’t work out.  Bellow is a Mongolian pedal-you-self ride.My dad was in charge of showing me the world.  Here he is at the helm of his sailboat.  He was looking to sail around the world but couldn't find anyone crazy enough to go with.My grandfather and I have done lots of world trips.  Here he is giving me the finger for taking a photo of him walking his bike up the last bit of a mountain pass.  For the record, he did ride 99% of the pass.These are some of my friends who went to the World Cup without me. Julia, the tipsy one on the right, is my loving (and wicked-smart) wife.Here is our "dog," Quimby. Despite how this may look, she cannot swim, bark, or fetch for that matter.
