Matt was born and raised in England. At school, he was equally good at English and Math, but correctly decided that Mathematics was where the money was. After studying Economics at Exeter University, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Arthur Andersen (may they rest in peace...)

Over the next twenty years he worked for major corporations in industries such as mining, hospitality, banking, distribution and retail. His ambition to become a C.F.O. was overachieved in 2008 when he was appointed Chief Financial and Operating Officer of America's largest retailer of outdoor living products, based in Carlsbad, California.

Throughout his career, Matt was dogged with the criticism that he was too funny and creative to be an accountant. So having achieved the goals he had set himself in the world of finance, he has decided that it is time to pursue the other branch of his personality as a writer.

Matt’s other love is travel, having lived in 5 countries on 4 continents, becoming an Australian citizen on the way. He has visited more than 95 countries and every US State. He currently lives in Cibolo, Texas, just outside San Antonio with his wife, two rat terriers (Sugar and Mister) and a cat named Donato.
