Matt has been living in Chicago now for going on six years, his first four spent at UIC competing on the track team and fulfilling a double major. With plenty of exploring and familiarizing him with Chicago during school, it wasn’t until this past year that he picked up a camera and finally started capturing the amazing views he came to be so familiar with.
