Matt comes from a long lineage of hermit farmers, finding sustenance in the beautiful idyllic wilds of the Cascade foothills. As Whiskey Sidekick's resident redneck, he is a true-blooded American to the core. Guns, trucks and rock n' roll are where he finds solace.

But Matt has a secret when it comes to whiskey. He loves good bourbon (and the occasional moonshine) but his true passion resides over the pond. He once kissed the Blarney Stone and ever since has been enamored with Irish Whiskey and peated Scotch. Matt spends his days sipping a myriad of whisk(e)ys and exploring the woods with his pet bald eagle Freedom.
