UpaDowna ‘sAdventure on Tap features:

Matthew Chavez

Matt’s desire to explore grows each and every time he returns from a trip. A California native who has called Colorado his home for the past 5 years, continues to chase adventures from local 14’ers, road trips, and even the seven summits. Since moving here to become a firefighter for Colorado Springs, he has found a balance with work and travel, ensuring he takes 1 trip abroad and 1 trip inside to United States to see our beautiful country. By making travel a priority, he has continued to add destinations to an ever growing list. A self proclaimed beach bum turned mountain lover, Matt just returned from the summit of Aconcagua and is preparing for a 5 week road trip this July that will include beaches, mountains, glaciers and lots of backroad exploration of the western states. He will be sharing about making travel a priority, his adventures locally as well as Tanzania, Peru, Iceland, Argentina and beyond!
