Matthew was born in Toronto in 1985. In addition to his home town, he has lived in Vancouver and Kobe, and now Tokyo. He wants to add London, San Francisco and Berlin to the list at some point. He basically has a degree in Asian Political Economy but has decided that journalism is much more interesting, and is somehow scrabbling together a living between the publishing industry, freelance writing, editing and the requisite bar work. He wants to be a better photographer, is fascinated by urban space, and thinks the dinner party is the greatest invention ever.
