Thanks for visiting! I'm glad my work resonated with you, and I'd appreciate your support.

My Work:
I believe in the power of the written word to spread good and fight bad ideas. As a collective organism, humanity reaches out into the unknown, grasping for comprehension of a fundamentally mysterious universe. We alI participate, knowingly or not; with my writing I seek to align that process with Life, in service of Good.

My long form writing tends toward the philosophical. I endeavor to present our culturally accumulated wisdom in light of modern science, technology, and culture. I've written pieces on topics ranging from the danger social media presents to human communication, to explorations of happiness through the existential lens, to a survey of humanity's evolutionary relationship with its tokens of value representation.

As we stand at the edge, between the known and the unknown, we attempt to encapsulate our subjective contact with the dreamlike landscape which lies before us. I try to capture slices of these moments in what might best be described as "hyper-reality", pairing heavily processed photography with poetry in an effort to crystallize and communicate my subjective experience in that moment. You can find my poetry and photography on Instagram.

Why Help?
If you're visiting this page it's probably because something I've written struck a chord with you. Perhaps it helped to make this often chaotic world slightly clearer, improved your life in some meaningful way, or provided a new way of looking at the world–even momentarily. I consider myself to be part of a historical chain of evolving ideas. I'm only able to think and write what I do because other wonderful souls throughout history were given the freedom and financial opportunity to spend their time doing so. If you think my words, imagery, and ideas might help make this world a better place as we move through it together, I'd greatly appreciate your support!

To bringing forth the best in humanity,
Matthew
