About the Author

A graduate of Wilfrid Laurier’s Business Administration program in Waterloo, Canada, Matt Jackson was lured away from the corporate world by the thrill of adventure journalism while still a university student. He is now an author, editor, photojournalist and professional speaker, and is the president of Summit Studios, a publishing company specializing in books about travel, humor and the great outdoors.

Matt’s first book, "The Canada Chronicles: A Four-year Hitchhiking Odyssey," is a Canadian bestseller and won the IPPY award for best North American travel memoir in 2004. He has edited eight anthologies of short stories, including bestselling titles "Mugged by a Moose," "A Beaver is Eating My Canoe," and "Never Trust a Smiling Bear." His writing and photographs have also been featured in more than two dozen popular magazines such as Canadian Geographic, Equinox, Backpacker, Explore, Canoe & Kayak, and BBC Wildlife.

He lives with his wife Stacey and daughter Louise in Victoria, BC, where they spend as much time hiking and kayaking as possible.
