Mat has been on the move all his life. Born in Chicago, raised in both East Berlin and Denver, Mat is a traveler at heart. Before joining Natural Habitat Adventures, he studied aerospace sciences at the University of North Dakota where he received a BS degree and mild frostbite. Inspired by what he found while traveling with dad and grandpa, Mat has ventured on to visit many far-off corners of the world. Check out his slide show for a glimpse at his recent adventures. Mat thinks the most memorable journey to date is when he and his dad got stranded in the Kalahari Desert while driving a two-wheel drive rental car. He claims it is the most up-close and personal he ever plans to get with nature. When he's not in Canada working on our Polar Bear trips, Mat manages our information systems from his office in New York. And if you ever have a problem, Mat is the guy to call! He can fix anything.
Together, Natural Habitat Adventures and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to arrange nearly a hundred nature travel experiences around the planet, while helping to protect the magnificent places we visit and their wild inhabitants.
