Hey everyone! Over the last couple of decades my path, both in Special Operations and as an outdoorsman, has taken me all over the world, but it all started right here in New Jersey! I grew up exploring the woods near my home in Denville, where I first found my wilderness inspiration in the echoes of the Native Americans who once inhabited our hills. Early on, I became interested in the techniques of survival, tracking, and eventually rock climbing, backpacking, and skiing. In 1999, I visited the Black Hills of South Dakota, and began what has now been a 20 year relationship with the Lakota tribe, and a love for the wild spaces of the American West. In 2003, I decided to follow my interests in self development and service into the military, and I enlisted in the US Coast Guard where I eventually became a Helicopter Rescue Swimmer. In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina struck the gulf coast, I was fortunate enough to be involved in 140 helicopter rescues within New Orleans. Following an extremely rewarding 4+ years in the Coast Guard, I returned to NJ where I began to guide rock climbing, backpacking, and survival training in New Jersey and New Hampshire. It was during this time, while we were both fixtures in the Allamuchy State Park climbing scene, that I first met Joey Vulpis from Northeast Mountain Guiding.
During this period, I enlisted in the Army National Guard with the goal of entering Special Forces. After completing Infantry training, Airborne school, and a variety of other schools, I was selected as a candidate for Special Forces. In 2009 I reported to Ft. Bragg NC, where I underwent 21 months of training in the SFQC (Special Forces Qualification Course). After making it through training which included small unit tactics, cultural and language training in Arabic, SERE (Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape school), the SF Weapons SGT Course, and an Unconventional Warfare culminating exercise, I finally earned my Green Beret in the summer of 2011. After graduation, I moved to Colorado and reported to my National Guard Special Force unit. Living in and around Boulder, I had the opportunity to take my passion for the outdoors deep into the Rockies where I continued to polish my navigation, survival, and off-trail skills. When not exploring the mountains in the US, I traveled around the world as a Green Beret, including missions in Europe, North Africa, two combat deployments to the mountains of Afghanistan, and countless Special Operations schools and training evolutions.
Following my last trip to Afghanistan, I transferred to my unit’s “training detachment” where I mentor and assess Special Forces hopefuls from the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Navy. On the civilian side, I’ve been able to remain active in the aviation and maritime search-and-rescue fields through jobs as a Rescue Swimmer instructor for Ocean Rescue Systems International, and a hoist and tactical advisor for SRT Helicopters, as well as an independent training contractor for the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM). In my spare time, I have also run my own leadership and team-building company called Origins Training Group and a wilderness mentoring company called Warrior Wilderness Mentoring. I continue to maintain and develop relationships with the Native American nations which have been so influential on my philosophies in wilderness and in life. As an aspiring author of historical fiction and non-fiction, one of my long term goals is to share that positive influence I've received through my writing. In 2018, my wife Aja and I got married in our home town of Denville. Not long after, we bought a home in the woods in Rockaway NJ where we live today with our fat cat Ocho and our Siberian Husky Sky. I still travel regularly to the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest to practice my wilderness skills and philosophy, but I am super excited to be back in the New Jersey area, and honored to have the opportunity to become a big part of this organization!
See you out there!
Sadly, Matt passed away in 2022

I recently retired from being a Police Officer with the Ramsey Police Department here in sunny
New Jersey. During my time with Ramsey, I spent most of my time as a Detective, as well as a Patrol
Officer, Tactical Team Member, and a Task Force Officer with the DEA. I have investigated numerous
types of crimes and incidents with specializations in arson and fraud investigations.
Prior to becoming a Police Officer, I was a Special Agent with the Diplomatic Security Service out
of the New York Field Office. During my time there I conducted national security investigations that dealt with passport and visa fraud, terrorism, and counter-intelligence operations. Additionally, I provided protection to visiting foreign dignitaries and high-level U.S. Diplomats within the New York City Region. In addition to this, I provided high-threat protection to U.S. personnel in Iraq in 2007 and 2008.
I began my career in the Marine Corps as an Infantry Officer, I spent 6 years on active duty in
which I deployed to Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Iraq, and Cuba for combat operations and non-combat
operations. During my times in the reserves, I have served as a Company Commander, Instructor at the
Basic School (TBS), an Operations Officer, and Marine Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officer (MEPLO). I continue to serve in the reserves as a Lieutenant Colonel where I have also deployed to Afghanistan and Central America for both combat and counter drug operations.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in communications for William Paterson University and 2 master’s
degrees, one in Leadership from Marshall University and another in Defense and Strategic Studies from
the Naval War College,
I've always been a lover of all things outdoors, it's my favorite place to be. As a kid, my family would go kayaking and camping regularly, and we had a house on the river that has always been my second home. The outdoors has always brought me life and I grew up just craving more adventure.
After high school, I left my hometown in Pennsylvania and joined the United States Marine Corps to explore more! In 2010, after bootcamp, combat training, and schooling to learn how to drive really big trucks... I headed off to Okinawa, Japan. A few months after getting to island, I started to get my exploring in while getting ready for our 7 month deployment to Afghanistan. In 2011, our first training was Balikatan in the Philippines with the Philippine Marine Corps and the Philippine Army. After that was Pohang, Korea training with the ROK (Republic of Korea) Marine Corps, and then Enhanced Mojave Viper in California. February 2012 we deployed providing Tactical Logistics Support delivering and retrograding supplies and equipment, and recovering vehicles. All safely returning home, my next duty station was at Chemical Biological Incident Response Force in Maryland where I honorably discharged from the military a new mom.
My name is Gabrielle Woodruff, but most know me as Gabi! I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Homeland Security program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and work as a part-time Manager as a 5-star seafood restaurant in North Jersey.
My family had a very large impact on me growing up and to current. My grandfather was a boy scout troop leader for 30 years after serving in Vietnam. He would always take me out camping and teach me wilderness survival techniques as well as a lot of life lessons that I still incorporate into my every day. Every male in my family was either a military veteran, active duty or a first responder. My brother and his wife are Captains in the United States Army, my father is a Navy veteran, my grandfather is an Army veteran, and he also played a role in the Special Forces where he received a purple heart. Given my background, you can imagine why what we do here at National Rescue & Response Institute gets me so excited! The impact that we are making on emergency rescue is a game changer. I began working in marketing during COVID, I was networking and was introduced to Joseph Vulpis. When he told me about what we would be doing here, I was beyond eager to get started! I can’t wait to see where we go and the impact that we’re going to make in the first responder community.
