Matthew is our Founding Father who updates you on everything that is crucial for the U.S. When little Matthew used to be asked who he wanted to be when he grew up, the answer was "Elvis". That was a long-lasting effect that the 3-year-old Matthew got from watching an Elvis impersonator contest on TV. His parents spent the next decade quietly dreading that he would run away to Hollywood one day. Instead Matthew won a scholarship in Barcelona, graduated in Business Administration and spent four years building a career in HR. Journalism was a happy accident that Matthew got into thanks to a girlfriend; she was an intern at The Denver Post. Starting with copywriting gigs, he quickly moved to the more serious stuff for The Working In, FigureIT, and The County Watch. Matthew currently resides in good old Denver, keeping a watchful eye on everything that makes America tick. And yes, he still loves Elvis.
