Matt Roloff is best known for starring in the hit TLC reality show Little People, Big World. In over 225 episodes, tens of millions of people around the world have followed the challenges Roloff and his family face in their home in Oregon, but there is far more to his story than what the camera captures.
Roloff operates a successful family farm specializing in peach and pumpkin crops, has authored two books (Against Tall Odds and Little Family, Big Values), was a top salesman for Fortune 500 companies, and currently owns a manufacturing company specializing in mobility equipment for little people. He has served as national president of Little People of America, the national advocacy organization for people with dwarfism, and co-founded and serves as president of the Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy, a nonprofit that advocates for little people in areas such as medicine, vocation, education, adoption, and public accommodations. Roloff has also made three humanitarian trips to the Middle East to facilitate life-saving medical efforts for little people in Iraq.
However, his most inspiring success has been to overcome the challenges imposed on him by diastrophic dysplasia, a rare form of dwarfism that attacks cartilage and bone development. Even while undergoing countless surgeries as a child, Roloff showed a remarkable level of resiliency and zest for life. It seemed that the more he was told he couldn't do something, the more committed he was to meet that challenge. To this day, his philosophy remains, "I may not be able to take the traditional avenues to reach goals, but with persistence and creativity, I'll find a way to succeed."
His belief in man's ability to "find a way" despite the most severe of obstacles underlies every story and lesson he shares with audiences around the nation, from Tyson Foods and Wal-Mart to Indiana University and the South Dakota Governor's Conference. Matt Roloff believes he has finally found his true calling: to inspire and motivate others to begin working toward their dreams. He has appeared on Oprah, The View, Good Morning America, The Bonnie Hunt Show, and The Rachael Ray Show and has been interviewed by CNN, Fox News, The New York Times, People magazine, and countless other media outlets.
Roloff has authored three books: Against Tall Odds: Being a David in a Goliath World, Little Family, Big Values and Little Lucy, Big Race.
