Matthew Jody Williams, born on 19 July 1980, middle child to 2 other siblings. Older brother and younger sister. Matt spent most of his childhood in KZN, but completed his last two years of school in Pretoria, where he lived in Bronkhorstspruit and where he completed his Matric at Willowridge High School. Having always been a sport fanatic and participant, he went on to complete an Advanced Diploma in Sports Management at the Allenby Campus in Hatfield.
Matt worked for USSASA a short period of time before moving on for the next two years as an internal sports master at King David High School. After 7 years in Gauteng, he felt that KZN was calling me back, but he made a two and a half year pitstop in the central Drakensberg, where he worked as Sports and Entertainment Co-ordinator.
Finally in 2007 he was back in KZN, with his girlfriend (now wife) Chrisna, whom he met in Pretoria while studying. They got married in 2009 on Madiba's birthday after being together for 9 years. Together they made the decision to move to Ballito in 2010 where they bought a unit off plan and moved into their new home in November 2011. Just under a year later Matt & Chrisna welcomed their little girl Olivia into the world in Oct 2012. In 2017 their second daughter arrived and was an awesome addition to the Williams tribe! Chrisna and Matt have both been working in Ballito since 2011 and absolutely love the area and people. Family time often involves spending time at the shark tank and other sporting events. Olivia was 3 months old when she attended her first game at the tank and is now loved by all our surrounding supporters in the stadium.
Matt believes he has found his true calling in being involved with Ballito TV. It has always been a passion of his to spread the gospel of sport and hope and we welcome him with open arms into our Ballito TV Presenter family.
