Matty Kratiuk was famous for all the wrong reasons. Guns were his best friend as he ruthlessly robbed, bashed and trod on anyone who got in his way. Today he is high on life and has guns of a different kind, the ones he builds in the gym. Killa the outlaw bikie gang standover man is gone and Matty the new man is here. Matty K walked into the Salvation Army’s Dooralong Centre a broken man, his life littered with drugs, alcohol and violence. As we were recording this interview I was moved to tears, listen in!
