Matt Blank travels the world base jumping and exploring what makes this human experience unique for everyone.
Matt Blank grew up in Southern California skateboarding by day and racing BMX by night. Most mornings he spent at the beach surfing or bodyboarding before school, always with an eye on the weather in case he needed to skip out early to hit the coast.
After high school he worked own way through the University of California Irvine as a rock climbing instructor and while he was finishing his degree in psychology and social behavior with a minor in film he worked technical rope and cave search and rescue for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department.
After college his attentions shifted to snowboarding, skydiving and B.A.S.E jumping. He instructed freestyle and all mountain snowboarding for Vail Corp. and still instruct skydiving from time to time at Perris Valley Skydiving Center. In the more recent years he jumped from one extreme community to the next pursuing his ultimate goal of collaborating with other like minded extreme athletes to create projects that can only be characterized as “mind grenades” . But what is past is prologue and therefore he’s always ready for the next adventure.

Chris Douggs McDougall about himself:
“My life has been devoted to BASE jumping and skydiving for over 16 years now – 16 years that have brought me endless joy and adventure and taught me what living life to the fullest really means. BASE jumping proves that nothing is impossible if you chase your dreams with passion and determination.
My chosen adventure sports have taken me to all corners of the globe, exploring some of nature’s true wonders in the company of the world’s most unique, inspirational people. I created BASEdreams to share my experiences of these incredible sports, in the hope that they may inspire even just one person to break free from the constraints of society and achieve what their hearts most desire – whatever that may be.
While only a handful of us will experience BASE jumping, we’re all plunging through the freefall of life. And we have to make the most of it.”
