The name's Matt, the profession is writing, and the humor is calculated. I'm a staff writer that covers military history for Black Rifle Coffee's digital publication: Coffee Or Die magazine. Previously I worked as a freelance writer where some of my stories appeared on the Filson Journal, We Are The Mighty, All That's Interesting, and other smaller history-focused online publications.
In my free time I contribute as the Editor-at-Large for the non-profit One More Wave where we share stories of veteran surfers (team riders) and their journeys through surf and art therapy. I also helped create the Warrior Spotlight series on Fairways For Warriors. Through this organization I had the opportunity to use my voice to echo through the airwaves of ESPN Radio. Here I advocated for other types of solutions for veteran disabilities.
As a fun creative outlet, I use my micro-blog @LateNightHistory on Instagram to share the story behind the image. The topics are broad from crime, cuisine, sports, innovation, espionage, and culture.

It's come to my attention that Wix (my website host) cannot support my Instagram feed because of a "developer error." Normally pictures of all my nightly stories populate here. Instead, just click the hyperlink above until it is resolved.
