ttngidoc (also known by his real name Matthew Nguyen) was an elevator filmer from Houston, Texas, United States .  He launched his YouTube account "ttngidoc" in July 2011.  His first elevator video was a modded Montgomery elevator at Los Angeles International Airport and was posted to YouTube on July 26, 2011.

When his channel was terminated on September 23 2013[1], he switched to a new channel "RobloxCoolcars20." The new channel was also branded as "Matthew Alt".  However, his first channel was re-activated shortly thereafter and he resumed uploading to his "ttngidoc" account.

On June 15, 2014, Matt announced on his YouTube channel discussion page that he would stop filming elevators in late 2014 because they were getting boring.[2]

On May 2015, he quit YouTube due to school work. However his channel is still open.
