Matt Carriker, born on October 24, 1986, is a well-known YouTuber, entrepreneur, and social media personality. He rose to fame with his YouTube channel, which he created back in 2007. Over the years, he has created a set of YouTube channels that focus on a range of content, namely “DemolitionRanch” and “Vet Ranch.” Alongside being an internet star, he works as a veterinarian and strives to create awareness about animal welfare and healthcare. Today, we are celebrating his special day by discussing his life story. Why don’t you join us?
Matt Carikker was born in Fredericksburg, Texas, U.S.A., to parents Pat and Lee Carriker. His father worked as a veterinarian, and his mother was a stay-at-home mom. He also has two siblings—two brothers named Mark William Carriker and Drew Carriker. His brother, Mark, also worked as a YouTuber but tragically lost his life in March 2020.
In 1989, the family relocated to Boerne, Texas, where he completed his early education. When he was in high school, Carriker met a woman named Meredith, and the two began dating. They also graduated high school together. In 2004, the couple tied the knot and got married. In April 2007, Carikker started his YouTube journey with a channel titled “OffTheRanch,” where he uploaded vlogs documenting his daily life. The channel garnered popularity over time, especially due to his renovation videos of abandoned cars and houses. While he was pursuing his graduation in 2011, Carriker started another YouTube channel named “DemolitionRanch” on January 3. That same day, he posted his first video on this second channel.
As he focused solely on creating and posting videos, Carriker did not graduate. Moreover, he had plans to establish a vet hospital after graduation, but that dream did not materialize as he did not earn the certificate for the same. Therefore, he took a break from making videos and shifted his focus to his studies. After completing his graduate studies this time, he opened a vet hospital and continued his work on “Demolition Ranch.” In 2014, he started a third channel named “Vet Ranch,” which focuses on animal welfare.
