About Matt

Life is a collection of moments. Mindfulness is beautification of the moments.

 
Howdy, my name is Matt!

My passion is to create fun and informative travel videos, if you enjoy my videos please subscribe to my YouTube channel today and follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Recently my work has been featured by popular YouTubers.

Why I started the Reformatt Show

Reformatt.com began as a school project back in 2004 and grew out into a travel blog to inform my friends & family back in the Netherlands on my life around the world. I started to really enjoy writing articles on all the places I visited and tried to inspire people to explore their world. 

Why the name Reformatt?

I had an obsession with reformating my computer to keep it as lean & clean as possible during my student years. Reformat ends with 'mat' thus creating'reforMatt', I loved the name and I have kept it ever since.

My Hobbies

I am a massive nerd at heart. Computers have always been my greatest passion. As a child I had an obsession with building materials like LEGO and became addicted to programming, graphic design, video games, basically anything computer related in the late 90's. 

Nowadays I organize the longest private run LAN party in Toronto (since 2005) called MattLAN at which my close friends bring their laptops for a 30+ hour nerd weekend once a year.

My major hobbies range from traveling, reading historical, technical & scientific literature, policitis, philosophy, learning languages, computer programming, designing, art & cosplay.
