After leaving West Virginia to attend college, Matt jumped from job to job (going from a brain imaging lab studying addiction and deception to a painter in WV and Puerto Rico) until landing in law school in Philadelphia. Having roamed enough to know nothing beats the sound of a rain swollen crick racing through a holler, Matt moved back to the mountains to be near family. If he’s not at the office, he’s liable to be relaxing at home with his wife and two boys.
