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.
All of my published articles can be found in the Writing tab.
In my free time I volunteer as the Managing Editor 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.
