Matt Moss is an outdoorsman and naturalist from the UK. Matt’s specialties are forests and their associated species, primarily; trees, plants, fungi, and deer. Matt work as both a forester and nature guide and has recently become part of Light Grey Art Labs travel programs. As a naturalist Matt spends much of his time in the outdoors, educating people on topics such as; ecology, conservation, and environmental issues. As a forester, Matt is able to make decisions on how land can be managed in ways that enhance and benefit wildlife.

Matt started his career as a graphic designer and videographer in the Skate /BMX industry, a job that helped nurture his creative passion. After 10 years as a creative Matt decided to follow his true passion – the natural world. Matt has always considered himself an outdoorsman, growing up fishing, hiking, camping and shooting he longed for a life in the wild. Many years ago, Matt took a job working as a forester and spent his days managing English ancient woodlands. Along the way, Matt picked up many backwoodsman skills and is an experienced woodsman and hunter. For the past few years, Matt ran a forestry degree program in the UK. With his students, he would undertake scientific studies in forests, teaching students about plants, animals and fungi and how these organisms play a key role in our ecosystems.

Matt travels a lot for work but mainly travels for adventure. Matt has a fascination with our ancestral and nomadic connection to the natural world and made a conscious decision at an early age to get out there and explore. With a few good friends and a bunch of gear, he’d hit the road and wouldn’t look back. Since then Matt has traveled to many wild places; hiked, explored, cooked foraged food over a fire and slept under the stars. The desire to travel has led Matt to many places and one day a chance encounter while out for adventure brought him here.

King Alfred's Cake Daldinia concentrica is a saprophytic decay fungi predominantly found on the dead branches of ash trees. When cut open, the concentric rings can be counted to determine seasons of reproduction. Daldinia is one of several species of fungi that was carried by our Mesolithic ancestors. This was used as a primary method for fire lighting by placing the glowing ember into a bundle of fine tinder.
