Matt is the Managing Director of Surveytech, an independent survey equipment firm in London. Matt first began using surveying equipment aged seven when following his father around as a chain boy. He continued to do so when working a summer job on building sites, at the same time as earning a degree from Oxford University. After graduating, he joined Surveytech and has since trained in surveying technologies and archaeology with a particular focus on GIS and laser scanning. As a Geomax-specialist partner, Matt has spent the last decade supporting clients to work with more efficient digital processes on site. Outside of Surveytech, Matt occasionally works as an actor, appearing as a regular character in BBC sitcom, Cuckoo, amongst other things.
