Matthew Failor, 32, was born and raised in Ohio. He says, “My family taught me a love of the outdoors; camping, fishing, canoeing, backpacking, hunting, were all things we did on family vacations. My mom and dad and brothers and sister all enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. My three brothers and I are Eagle Scouts.”


Failor moved to Alaska in 2006 for a summer college job as a dog handler at Gold Rush Sled Dog Tours. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Photography in 2007. He moved to Alaska permanently in 2008 to work with Matt Hayashida and train with him and his dogs.


He has worked for various mushers and in 2010, he started handling for Martin Buser and ran his first Iditarod as Martin’s handler.
