Seven months after becoming sober, Matheson shot his first episode of Keep it Canada.
Matheson moved to Toronto in 2000 and attended Humber's cooking program. He found he had a talent for butchering meat, and after a short stint on tour as a roadie for his friends metal band, Matty got back on track and continued his culinary career.
Matheson began working at Le Sélect Bistro under chef Rang Nguyen who taught him French culinary techniques. In 2006, Matheson was hired at the restaurant, La Palette. In 2010, Matheson became executive chef at the new Parts & Labour restaurant. His recognition, outgoing and wild personality would lead to his appearance on the show Munchies.
