Every week I’m interviewing fascinating people in our community, nation and around the world!

The idea came from a Facebook commenter who saw a video of me and my family floating down the river in Island Park. The person said I should turn the tables and interview my dad (Nate Eaton) – so I did and the rest is history!

Matt Allred is a father of four who works as an OB-GYN at Madison Women’s Clinic. He’s very creative and is known for his amazing driveway chalk drawings. He and his family also have a YouTube channel where they feature Mario Hot Wheels races.

But I first learned about Matt last year when he built a colorful igloo in his backyard. I even spoke about the cool project on The Drew Barrymore Show.

This year Matt built an even bigger igloo – and he invited me to interview him inside with a mug of hot chocolate.

Here are the questions I asked:

  • How did it take to make the igloo?
  • Tell me how you made the igloo.
  • How long does it take you to make the Hot Wheel tracks?
  • What’s your favorite chalk art drawing that you’ve done?
  • What made you want to build the igloo?
  • What made you start the chalk art projects?
  • What advice do you have for me?

Watch my entire interview with Matt in the video player above and follow the Allreds on their YouTube channel here.
