I'm Matt!

 I started writing about food while in

culinary school in Chicago. Ever since 2006,

I've been writing about food and travel,

starting as an editor of the Robert Morris University newspaper before getting into 

freelance. I've written and edited for companies

like Travel + Leisure, Thrillist, Zagat, Culture Trip,

TripSavvy, and Plate MagazineIn recent  years, I've

gotten more into writing about adventure travel,
national parks, and Disney. In 2019, I launched a
podcast with iHeartRadio called Parklandia

about national parks, RV life, and travel, with

my husband Brad. In 2020, we went 

independent with Hello Ranger, a 
national parks community blog, 
podcast, and social app. We 

settled in Oklahoma City in 2020,

when I became the first gay writer

to have a cover story on 

The Oklahoman.
