My name is Matt Moniz. I am an alpinist, an adventurer, an advocate and an ambassador. My passion is the outdoors – skiing, climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and protecting the land that makes these activities possible.
I hold the speed record for completing the 50 High Points in the 50 States, starting from the summit of Denali in Alaska to the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii in 43 days, 3 hours and 51 minutes.
