Born in Erie and raised on its beaches, Matt had a colorful upbringing. Building fires, skipping rocks, peeing in the lake while watching the sun set, and sneaking beers from the fridge occupied his younger years. While these are still some of his favorite pastimes, he also enjoys a good book, writing, listening to music, playing music in his band Falling Hollywood, drinking good beer, drinking cheap beer, yard work, demolishing things, making up words, using malapropisms, abbreviating words that don’t need to be abbreved, cooking, making up band names and guessing their respective genres.

Matt is a fresh graduate from Pennsylvania State University. While there, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts and Sciences and a minor in English. After graduation, he returned to Erie to continue playing in his band Falling Hollywood. In conjunction with his musical endeavors he wanted to find a writing job; lo and behold, The Erie Reader decided they wanted a “Flowers” on their team too. You can contact Matt at mFlowers@ErieReader.com, and you can follow him on Twitter @MFlowersER.
