  • From his Cascade base, Matt is at work on creative output if he's not behind a book or embedded in the wilderness.

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.
