Matt is one of our most senior building code consultants, first joining the Knisco team back in 2014.                                                                      

The company is excited to have Matt back in the Queensland office post his year-long adventure in Nepal, and have taken advantage of his wide range of industry knowledge and expertise in all things BCA since his return. Without further ado, here are a few things you might not know about Matt:

1. Matt grew up in a country town of South Australia that had a population of about 3000 people.  He attended the same school from Kinder to Year 12 and was taught by teachers who had also taught both his parents.

2. In 2010, he travelled around Australia with a few of his friends, living out of his swag, while managing to live off only $5000 over the 5 month trip.

3. He studied architecture for 3 years in Adelaide and managed to complete the Bachelor Degree.  Upon completion, he decided architecture wasn’t for him and begun the glamorous journey to building certification.

4. Matt loves the outdoors – especially trekking.  He recently did a 22-day hike in Nepal and a 7-day hike along the Margaret River coast in Western Australia.
