Arkansas Survival InstructorOwner of American Survival Co. & Integrated Survival Systems, Former Army Combat Engineer, NRA-Certified Pistol Instructor, NRA Range Safety Officer, NRA Firearms Instructor

You’ve seen Matt compete on Discovery Channel’s Bushcraft Build-off, but his love of survival started as young kid growing up in a Cherokee community where the old ways of hunting, fishing and bushcraft of the Native American culture are still cherished.

Today, he owns Integrated Survival Systems and pursues his passion of teaching others life-saving survival techniques. Matt continues to raise the bar, training in wilderness skills both domestically and internationally. He holds a patent for a mission adaptable holster currently used by Tier One operators and has designed a knife with Dozier knives specific to survival training.

His survival experience is matched by his tactical experience; serving as an Army Engineer in Fallujah, Matt encountered heavy combat. He then went on to serve with the Oklahoma Military Dept, Employment Security Commission and the Executive Branch of the US Govt.

Today, Matt uses his wilderness and tactical experience to provide to civilian, military, and organizational training domestically and internationally. He lives in Arkansas, where he runs Integrated Survival Systems.
