The name's Matt, the profession is writing, and the humor is calculated. I'm a staff writer that covers military, first responder, and intelligence community 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 and other smaller history-focused online publications.
All of my published articles can be found on Authory. Original reporting stories can be found under the "Writing" tab on my website.
I'm also an avid supporter of One More Wave and have written 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 wars, people, food, sports, crime, and culture.
