    Matt’s love and appreciation for dogs was forever solidified when his shetland sheepdog named Bingo helped save him from drowning when he was just two years of age. In addition to his appreciation for dogs his other passion is making films. It was very common to find Matt playing around with his dads Sony Handycam creating that next masterpiece when he was a kid. His love of storytelling spawned the eventual creation of Chapman Digital Motion Pictures. He began his professional career producing wedding, music, corporate, and commercial videos in-house as well as freelance for various clients. Then in 2007 Matt decided to create his online moniker Chappyshowcase and started distributing videos during the dawn of the Youtube renaissance. Since then Matt has distributed more than 350 videos on the internet accumulating more than 12 million views and counting. Matt’s other passion is training service dogs to help people with disabilities which led the foundation of his award winning web series Growing Up Guide Pup which he found with his wife Amie as a cutting edge initiative to raise awareness about service dog altruism. Eventually Matt and Amie turned Growing Up Guide Pup into a 501(c)3 so they could chase their passion to educate the world about service dogs. Matt has been the sitting Chairman since 2015. He is also a board member for Brigadoon Service Dogs and Mobility Service Dog West Coast Project. On top of that he also runs a dog care business and loves spending as much time as possible with his wife Amie, his dogs Ricki and Ozzy, and his service dog puppies in training.
