WHAT IS BIG MAN OUTDOORS?
Big Man Outdoors is the passion project of voice actor Matthew Rhode. Over the years, Matthew found that much of the outdoors equipment available wasn’t suited for his 6’6”, 275-pound frame. Aptly named, Big Man Outdoors documents Rhode’s adventures in the wilderness with his dog, Luna. Rhode is now publishing content on Facebook and Vimeo under the Big Man Outdoors brand, chronicling his outdoor activities—such as wilderness living skills, bushcraft, hunting, and fishing—from a unique vantage point. You can also find blog posts, gear reviews, stories, advice, photos and more here on the Big Man Outdoors website.
Matthew Rhode (born, April 19, 1982) is an American voice actor who has recorded many movie trailers, television commercials, and network promotions.
Rhode found a modicum of early success acting in television commercials for companies like Powerade and JC Penney, but his big break came when he was in an agent’s office in New York. The head of voiceovers for the agency overheard Matthew talking from another room and immediately recognized his potential. After a quick introduction, Rhode was signed on the spot and began doing voiceover work for brands like Progressive Insurance, Miller Lite, and Chevron. He also found himself contributing to one of his favorite hobbies, video gaming, with a variety of work on Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5.
Around this same time, Matthew became a premium partner of Twitch.tv, a popular live streaming service for gamers. Under the moniker “Ducksauce“, Rhode put out regular comedic broadcasts and connected with his 300k+ followers. Rhode has since left Twitch and focuses solely on voiceovers.
After a move to the West Coast, Rhode soon met the love of his life-TV star and model Adrianne Curry. They are married and currently reside in Montana.
Being an avid outdoorsman, Rhode also started up Big Man Outdoors. Aptly named because of his large size, Big Man Outdoors is a passion project that documents his adventures in the wilderness with his dog, Luna. These videos are self filmed and often showcase wilderness living skills and bushcraft.
