Matt was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and grew up in a hamlet outside the city. As a kid, he enjoyed cycling across town and imagining worlds that somehow always involved fumbling in the dirt. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta, where he double majored in English and Film Studies, and is currently at work on his Master of Arts degree in Film Studies from Montreal’s Concordia University. In his spare time, Matt enjoys reading, watching movies, hiking, and gardening. At Brainboost, Matt tutors English and Humanities, and is thrilled by the possibility of imparting his own passion for words, storytelling, and history to students.
