Hi, my name's Matt and I write books, scripts, and pretty much everything else.

Right now, though, I'm focused on one of my greatest passions: Freemasonry. I believe Freemasonry is a godsend, especially to young men looking for direction. But its philosophies can be a bit cryptic, and sometimes members just can't find the relevance to their lives. That's where I come in. I'm writing a book called Practical Freemasonry, which teaches anyone how to apply these concepts to their everyday life.

Will You Be One of The 99?

At Practical Freemasonry we're all about secret societies, and one of the most elite (that we'll tell you about) is the 99.
When we have reached 99 patrons I will commission the following design as a limited edition lapel pin. They will be distributed to the first 99 members who have supported Practical Freemasonry for at least $9 over your patronage (no sneaky getting in at the last minute! Your pin will be worth something!)
No logos. No advertisements. No square and compass. Only mystery!
