A life-long basketball enthusiast, Matt Browning graduated from Milan High School, whose storied 1954 basketball team served as the model of the inspirational small town story of basketball glory depicted in the critically acclaimed 1986 motion picture Hoosiers. He went on to attend Oregon State University, with a focus in Business Administration and then took a position with Hill-Rom, Inc., a Fortune 500 company, where he held the title of Territory Representative. Following this professional experience, Browning served as an Account Executive with Apria Healthcare, the largest durable medical equipment provider in the country.
Browning was then recruited by Joe and Dave Herbert to achieve similar success with their then startup company, Herbert Brothers Entertainment, whose mission was to develop and sell award-winning games. He worked with the Herbert brothers on the commercial launch of their first game, Triviathon®, which became an instant hit. This product was named by GAMES magazine as the number one new party game in the country in 2010 and is a three-time "Game of the Year" winner (2009, 2010 and 2011) as named by Creative Child magazine, as well as being the recipient of many other significant awards.
Browning accepted a full time position with Herbert Brothers Entertainment in 2009 following the success of their acclaimed "Free Doritos!" Super Bowl commercial of that year. Along with the Herbert brothers, Browning co-invented the card game "One-2-Ten." This game proved to be so commercially appealing that it was contracted for retail sale by Walmart prior to manufacturing for insertion in the company's 2011 Christmas product line.
With a long love of movies, Browning in 2009 made his on-camera debut as an extra in the Shasta commercial entitled "Good Deal." He also appeared in a Doritos webisode series entitled "Kings of Crash" and in 2010 he appeared in "Tool Fight," a Pepsi Max commercial.
