It's amazing the people you meet and haven't seen for a long time and suddenly you find them again and they've come along way. Back in 2003 when I was a student at the Katherine Rural College I met Matt Wright. He was working as a ringer for CPC and also had his chopper license. He was a nice, genuine, easy-going bloke that enjoyed a good laugh and he left a good first impression.
Nowadays he's no longer working for CPC. Instead he's the head-lining star of National Geographics new documentary show "Outback Wrangler". He certainly has come a long way from choking on dust in the cattle yards. He's gone from throwing mickey bulls to wrestling crocodiles and toying with other wild creatures in exotic places like Borneo.
I wish him all the best for the future and for his show which airs its premiere tomorrow night at 7:30pm (October 4th) on Nat Geo WILD.
