Hi, I’m Matt a.k.a. the Nerd of the Rings.

I create videos explaining characters and concepts from Middle-earth history, as well as a host of other Tolkien-related subjects.

If you love the Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, the Silmarillion – the books, the movies, the music – any and all of Middle-earth, join me in this adventure. I am honored to share this love of Tolkien with such excellent and admirable hobbits!

I started Nerd of the Rings in 2020 right before the Covid pandemic. In the coming months, (while we were all stuck at home) Nerd of the Rings would find a great community of Tolkien fans, growing to 100k YouTube subscribers in its first year. Now with over 1 Million subscribers on YouTube, Nerd of the Rings is the largest channel dedicated exclusively to Middle-earth. Nerd of the Rings brings fans together by discussing the books, films, tv, gaming, and collectibles, as well as featuring interviews with filmmakers, developers, and creators working in Tolkien’s world.
