Matt Landis

Matt is born and raised in Long Beach, CA and this is his fourth fire season. Matt's dedication to firefighting and helping Chudabeef is what led us to setting up this raffle. Matt became a firefighter to be a part of the solution and help out in the best way possible - especially during fire season. Matt enjoys the outdoors and being in a dynamic high stress situation so being able to bring both of these into his work life is super special. 

Matt started with Flagstaff (AZ) Fire Department then moved to Payson helitack on a type 3 helicopter. Last year he was on the Angeles helitack and this year he is on the Fox helitack. 

In his free time you catch him sailing to Catalina with his brother or ordering a special and a schooner at Joe Jost's (LB's oldest bar).
