Matthew is a seasoned educator with global experience. He began teaching twenty years ago at a small college in central China and has since worked for the New York State Board of Education, Colby-Sawyer College, Hesser College, Granite State College, the University of New Hampshire, Cardigan Mountain School, South Kent School, and the Oita Prefectural Board of Education in Japan. His passion for teaching and learning has propelled him twice around the world and through all fifty states.

Matthew’s appetite for education revealed itself while he was still a teenager. After his junior year of high school, he enrolled at Bard College. Yearning for even broader frontiers, he transferred to the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where he completed his degree and traveled throughout Europe. Fascinated by direct contact with other cultures, he accepted a teaching post in Zhengzhou, China, after graduation.

After working in China and Russia, he returned to his hometown in the Hudson Valley, where he started a family and worked for the New York State Board of Education. A few years later, he and his wife relocated to Oita, Japan, with their two young children. He spent three years teaching English at a Japanese high school while earning a graduate degree in Japanese through the University of Sheffield.

Matthew holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Fairfield University, and his writing has appeared in numerous publications, including Minimus, Kaleidoscope, and Mason’s Road, as well as in three anthologies: Defining Moments, Lost and Found, and Now What?: The Creative Writer’s Guide to Success After the MFA.
