Originally hailing from Australia, Matt Lewis is an enthusiastic and curious individual who has high hopes for his future. He was pursuing a career in the electrical field and playing music nearly every day until August 21, 2013 when Matt suffered terrible injuries after a gas explosion in Southeast Melbourne, Australia. Despite the setback, Matt is looking toward the future in the area of sports; both wheelchair rugby and winter sports. Taking advantage of opportunities when they arise, the High Fives Foundation has allowed Matt to pursue new ventures and keep fit and healthy.

“MY NEW GOAL IS TO PURSUE SPORTS (SUCH AS SKIING) THAT CHALLENGE ME, THANK YOU HIGH FIVES!“
