The Deadliest Job in America is, claimed to be crab fishing on the Bering Sea. A good season can make one man a year’s salary in just a few days! With forty-foot waves, 700 pound crab pots, freezing temperatures and your mortality staring you in the face…this job ranks as one of the deadliest.
Matt has fished with the Northwestern for the past 14 years and considers himself a part of the Hansen family. He was introduced to crab fishing by Edgar Hansen, his friend since junior high school.
Matt previously worked as a restaurant manager and cook, picking up culinary skills that are highly regarded on any boat in the Bering Sea. However, Matt still maintains that Edgar is the better chef.
Matt makes friends easily and loves to have fun, but he's had a tough battle with substance abuse. He's open and honest about what he's been through, and hopes to inspire others to find their way out of addiction.
When not on board the Northwestern, Matt lives with his girlfriend and daughter.
