About me

Hi, my name is Matt – I like dogs and music. When I’m not petting the former, I’m writing (or editing other writers’ works) about the latter.

I’m currently holding down the fort at Australian Guitar Magazine as its newest editor, after a storied three-and-a-half years of writing, proofreading and general shit-kicking under the guidence of (the legendary) Lachlan Marks. #139 is on shelves now all around Australia (duh) and New Zealand, with #140 on the way in October.

Head to guitarworld.com for more about that whole thing.

I’m also freelancing as a writer and editor for all things music, arts, culture and… Well, anything, really. I’m open for commissions on bios, copywriting, and editing services (from general proofreading to more advanced, in-depth tinkering and restructuring), and yes, I’m very keen to write for your website! I can wrangle everything from simple Q&As to mammoth feature articles, essays and reviews. If you need proof, I have a handy portfolio set up, which will show you pretty much everything I’ve had published from 2017 onwards.

Keen to hit me up for some writing work (or send hate mail)? Get in touch!

PS. My header photo was taken by the one and only Pat O’Hara. Love that dude.
