Matthew graduated from Kent State University in Ohio with a Geology degree and moved to Colorado the week after he received his diploma. After a few years as a digital cartographer, and a brief and still unexplainable stint writing assembly-language code for an Apple Developer, he acquired a Mac Plus and Illustrator '88 and has been an independent creative ever since.

Initially working as a technical and scientific illustrator, over the years Matthew's projects have become more creative. While he enjoys working with his fellow engineers and scientists, the majority of Matthew's current work is for small businesses, graphic design studios and ad agencies.

In his spare time Matthew climbs on mountains, crawls in caves and bicycles on roads.
