Matt was born in the quaint sailing town of Annapolis, Maryland. He grew up spending most of his time outside and around the water, which fueled his interest in biology and nature. His adventurous personality took him to Australia where he completed his Bachelors Degree in Marine and Freshwater Sciences at Deakin University. While studying in the land down under, he became an avid diver, surfer and spearfisherman - passions which would eventually draw him to the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Pursuing his diving career led him to complete his Dive Instructor course and move to the British Virgin Islands. He spent time working there as captain and Dive Instructor aboard a 47ft Catamaran. Matt enjoyed exploring the Caribbean islands and met his wife, Hillary, along the way.
He continued to work throughout the islands captaining dive boats, teaching diving, and gaining experience on the water. This prepared him with the knowledge to start working as an engineer on boats in and around St. Maarten and would eventually lead him to Lady Katlo.
***HILLARY WILSON, FIRST MATE AND STEWARDESS:
Hillary grew up in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, happily spending summers in and on the water on the beautiful lake in her backyard. When the cold winters came, she visited her grandparents on their yacht in the Bahamas and developed a love for the ocean and traveling. She pursued Photography and Environmental Studies at the University of Missouri where she went on to complete her Bachelor's Degree.
Hillary's desire to explore and learn new things has given her a range of useful qualifications. After traveling and working in many countries, her love for the sea led her to the Caribbean where she met her husband, Captain Matt, while obtaining her PADI Divemaster. Caring for people comes naturally to Hillary and she has found the perfect fit for her talents traveling around the world and working in the hospitality and diving industries. While living in St. Maarten, Hillary and Matt bought a 1968 sailboat in need of a refit. Hillary's eagerness to learn more about sailboat mechanics led her on a yearlong restoration project and gave her invaluable hands-on experience. Seeking to combine her passion for sailboats and experience in hospitality, she eagerly joined Matt in becoming part of the LADY KATLO team.
