Matt’s nine years of newspaper experience ran the gamut of the field, photographing, writing and paginating for a weekly newspaper in Northwest Georgia. From covering breaking news stories to capturing action photos from the back of a motorcycle, he eagerly embraced his assigned beats during a challenging time for the industry. As an award-winning education writer, he joined the WordSouth team in 2014 as a content manager.
