Matt Lindenberg

Ambassador of Assignments


Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, I grew up in a town next to the world famous Kruger National Park. I spent my weekends in wilderness areas with my family and friends. As a teenager, I lived in the US where I played on the junior tennis circuit and attended Montana State University. However, in 2009 I returned to South Africa to earn my Bachelors degree of Science in Environmental Management and train park rangers at the Southern African Wildlife College. In 2016, I received my Master's degree of Science at Grand Valley State University.

I met the Friendly Human team during the joint collaboration of the Rhino Man Documentary. As Senior Producer, I ensure our clients are more than happy with the outcome of their video content. I love doing everything I can to ensure the production process runs smoothly, on time, and most importantly is a fun process. After all, everyone has an exciting story to tell, and it’s our job to make it the most rewarding, meaningful and professional process you’ve EVER experienced.
