Formerly known as the front man of MTV’s Dirty Sanchez, Matt has left his pranking days behind for his love of vegan food, health and fitness.
He released his first vegan cookbook Dirty Vegan in December 2018, described by Waitrose magazine as having universal appeal. Matt’s series Dirty Vegan premiered on BBC 1 Wales to wide acclaim and a second series has since been commissioned. The series sees Matt cooking a variety of exciting dishes to win over the Welsh public. From a hearty vegan Paella for a women’s rugby team, to tasty energy fuelled meals for school dinners. His mission? To make Wales fitter, healthier and stronger. Convincing the public that plant based food can be a sustainable lifestyle option.

The summer of 2019 saw Matt achieve 4th place in Brutal Event’s Deca UK - a hardcore competitive race consisting of a 24-mile pool swim, 1,120-mile bike and 262-mile run.
In 2018, Matt featured in the BBC 1 Wales documentary Wild Man to Ironman. An inspiring film following Matt’s grueling journey through a 487- mile triathlon around the coast of Wales in just 14 days. The film exposes both his physical and mental strength. The challenge was as much one of endurance as it was a journey of self-discovery.
A professional skateboarder and stunt performer, Matt also owns the Sleep When You’re Dead Tattoo & Barbour shop in Cardiff. He’s also soon to open his own dog-grooming salon, Lemmy’s Chop Shop in Cardiff. Named after his beloved Springer Spaniel Lemmy.
