Originally from North Conway, New Hampshire, Matt has always enjoyed exploring the outdoors. His passion for travel began at a young age with a subscription to National Geographic magazine and hearing his grandparent's stories of their global adventures. He then headed south to New Orleans after graduating from the University of Vermont where he worked at Tulane University, while earning an MBA as well.
Over the years he’s ticked off several destinations from his bucket list including, Australia, England, Ireland, Scotland, Peru, Indonesia, and more. After returning to the Northeast, he joined the Audley team in Boston which provided the opportunity to expand his knowledge of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
Captivated by the diverse and dramatic landscapes, friendly people, unique wildlife and creative cuisines of Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, Matt is excited to share his knowledge and experiences to help others plan their tailor-made journey.

With crazy schedules and limited vacation time, we knew we needed help in planning a trip to New Zealand. Enter our Country Specialist Matt and Audley. With a desire to see as much as possible in the time we were there, we needed an itinerary that was aggressive yet flexible. Matt answered a ton of questions and helped us build out the perfect trip. Everything we planned worked wonderfully - excursions, ferries, cars, hotels, B&B’s. Thanks Matt and Audley for helping us with a once in a lifetime experience.
I'll never forget when…
At the Sounds of Silence dinner, watching the sun dip below the horizon in the Australian Outback, igniting Uluru into a multitude of bright colors, while stars began to light the night sky is one of my most memorable travel experiences. All evening my eyes were fixed upwards as planets, galaxies and millions of stars filled the night sky.
