Matthew was born in upstate New York with a book in one hand and a pen in the other - his poor mother has never forgiven him. After writing for the school paper and being president of the library club in high school, he finished his first novel in his late 20's and went on to publish his own arts and entertainment magazine in NY.

Now on staff at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL., Matthew has published two collections of short stories, in the dark humor/dark fiction/horror genres and was named 'Author of the Month' by Self-Publishers Showcase in Sept. 2018. He was also awarded a finalist award in the American Fiction Awards by American Book Fest in 2019.

Matthew's motto is to 'follow you bliss, and reach out and grab the unknown'.
