Matthew Kepnes runs the award winning budget travel site, Nomadic Matt. He never grew up in a family of travel lovers and it wasn't until a trip to Costa Rica in 2004 that he feel in love with the freedom and possibility travel had to offer. After a trip to Thailand in 2005, Matt decided to quit his job, finish his MBA and head off into the world. His original trip was supposed to last a year.
Eighteen months later, he came home, realized cubicle life wasn't for him, and set off to travel the world. Along the way, he started teaching others how to travel on a budget in hopes of showing that the prevailing wisdom is wrong—you can afford to travel wherever you want! His writings and advice have been featured in countless publications. He is also a regular speaker at travel trade and consumer shows.
When not traveling the world, he can be found in NYC eating sushi, dollar pizza, watching movies, and looking up flights for his next trip.
