Matt Link

Destined to be a travel writer, Matthew grew up on his father's 52-foot sailboat during his teenage years, cruising around Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Before that, he grew up in the mountains of Malibu, and Hollywood names like Errol Flynn, Lionel Newman, and Tom & Jerry creator Ray Patterson were all extended family members. Matthew has spent time in over 65 countries and Antarctica. An avid kayaker, rock climber, hiker, snowboarder, and skin diver, Matthew is also interested in the meaningful, life-changing facets of personal journeys. Africa is his all-time favorite destination, and perhaps future home.(right now...Palm Springs is his home)

Matthew Link is the founding editor of two travel magazines, The Out Traveler and Sherman's Travel, and he also worked side-by-side with guidebook pioneer Arthur Frommer as an editor at Frommer's Budget Travel magazine. Matthew is an award-winning travel writer, documentary filmmaker, and author of the first-ever gay guidebook to Hawaii. He’s also contributed to Newsweek, Time, ForbesTraveler, Conceirge.com, MSNBC, CNN, Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Business Traveler International, and many others. Matthew has appeared on numerous TV shows, including a regular slot on NBC's Early Today. He has personally interviewed the likes of Gore Vidal, Robert Kennedy, Jr., and various members of Congress.
