Maverick Matthews was born in Hilo, Hawaii on August 9, 1979.  Maverick has trained and worked extensively in the outdoor industry, holding certifications as a dive master, snowboard instructor and in various medical and bushcraft disciplines.  His work in the wilds landed him a job behind the scenes (and in the swamp) on one of the hottest reality shows of 2012.  He has since spent the last decade and a half in and around the entertainment industry, where he continues to work in film, television, and radio - both in front of and behind the camera and microphone.  

His podcast “Pepper For Your Steak” has trended in the top 200 of more than 20 countries around the world. 

 He produces and releases original compositions in the genres of both acoustic guitar and electronica.  

As a non-academic Historian and Counter Culture Expert, Resident DJ and EthnoPharmacologist, Maverick speaks regularly on podcasts around the world which consistently report view-counts in the hundreds of thousands.

Maverick is currently developing several secret retreat properties in the Mid-Florida, Gulf Coast area, including “Gardenia Manor” a hidden, beach-adjacent bungalow in St. Petersburg.
