As with most of the BRMB team, Matt wears a number of hats. When he isn’t busy helping customers with the installation of their GPS maps and answering questions about the product and its features, Matt assists the Geographic Information System (GIS) team with its cartographic work.
With a background in computers and graphics, Matt took quickly to the creation of geospatial data, and is always ready to respond to the next challenge. He studied at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and since joining Backroad Mapbooks in 2012 has achieved expertise in BRMB’s digital products.
