Matt Brown: Matt first started offering guided tours because of his love for the outdoors. In 2013, Matt started RiverDogz so that others can discover the joy and wonder of this natural treasure.
Matt has lived in Las Vegas Area for 14 years and has spent many years exploring and learning about Lake Mead National Park. Matt has a deep passion for the preservation of this vital resource that is Lake Mead as well as all our open lands. Matt has nearly four years as a top kayak and hiking guide in Lake Mead National Park and the Lower Colorado River. He holds certifications in CPR, Wilderness First Aid and WPA, as well as Paddle Fit Pro Level 2 certifications.

He now spends as much time as he can hiking all over the Southwest. He adds, “I love showing the world my backyard.”
