Matthew broke his first tooth chewing on a beaver rib as Billy and Ami rowed their canoe down a remote river in the bush country of Northern Alaska. From an early age, he was one of those kids that could make a friend in a matter of minutes and keep them as a friend for life. He started fishing at the age of four or five, when he would watch the radar and help steer the boat sitting in his dad's lap. By the time he was ten, he was already an avid hunter and fisherman. Matt has a variety of interests, from Egyptian petroglyphs and Sanskrit to mechanics and drawing. He can also juggle just about anything. As the first-born Brown sibling, Matt tries to look after everyone and prides himself on his problem-solving skills.
