  • Matt is a freelance entertainment, science, and history writer for Grunge.
  • He was an award-winning feature writer for The Register-Guard (as an arts and entertainment reporter), still serves as a freelance lifestyle reporter with The Manual, and is published in ArtNews, Variable West, U.S. News & World Report, Eugene Weekly, and more.
  • From his Cascade base, Matt is at work on creative output if he’s not behind a book or embedded in the wilderness.


He began his professional career at The Register-Guard in Eugene, Oregon, collaborating with a small team that launched CAFE 541, a dynamic arts and entertainment section delivering news across the southern Willamette Valley. After three years at the daily paper, Matt transitioned into national digital coverage as a lifestyle news reporter, working to reestablish The Manual as the place to go for Millennial men looking to live engaged lives.
