Hi, I’m Matthew! I currently live in the southern most African metropolitan, the beautiful Cape Town, the mother city.
About me in one sentence: I’ve hitchhiked and climbed peaks in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, India and Nepal, studied cultural anthropology in Cape Town, practiced as a Hindu monk, taught English to students from around the world, volunteered for education and sports NGOs and worked as a cross-cultural field instructor.
Adventures at the World’s Edge combines my passions for adventure, travel, humanitarianism, anthropology and writing. My projects focus on fundraising initiatives through community collaboration and adventure challenges. Writings on my shoestring travels and anthropological interests are also included as fuel for motivation for aspiring journeyers and curious wanderers on this incredible planet.
It is my sincere hope that I might be able to inspire others to follow the beat of their own hearts and have the courage to be agents of compassionate change in the world, while hopefully having far-out adventures at the world’s edge.
