Matt Nooney-Nunes: River Guide and ManagerMarch 8th, 2006 Malina
After graduating from Vasser at the tender age of 14, Nunes became the youngest ivy-leaguer in over fifty years. He made an excellent living on Wall Street, retiring at a mere 25. His life then took an unexpected turn: he had it all—money, fast cars, women. But there was a void, an emptiness. As Matt says, “it was passion, man—passion that I was missing.” So he joined the WWF, performing regularly in fabulous costumes until a groin injury forced him to take off his face paint, furry tail, and cape. He recovered in a spa by a river and heard about AO from the cleaning staff.
Even though that’s a total crock, Matt is still one of our favorite guides, beloved by guests and guides alike. AO hearts Nooney even without the cape.
