Matt began paragliding in 2001, with Dixon White in the Northwest US. Around the same time, he moved to the Austrian Alps where he spent most of the days he wasn’t skiing, in the air. He joined Ozone in 2004, becoming Director of Marketing and taking over distribution in the USA shortly after. In 2007, he and Rob Whittal started the Ozone Speed project, which has evolved into our current range of Speed Flying wings. In his spare time he wrote a book, and started a company. He has also found some success in wingsuit BASE jumping and wingsuit performance competition.
