I'm Matthew Parr. I am a 30-year-old twenty-something with a head full of observations and memories. I'm highly analytical and have a keen eye for consistency and detail. I love to learn new things, and get great joy from correcting grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors.

I began as a coffee shop short-story writer. I then starting writing a monthly article for a Roanoke, VA local Christian magazine. Next, I studied for a few years to attain an English degree (concentrating on tech/business writing & communication) from Radford University in 2014. I worked for 3+ years at a startup ticket selling management company in Alexandria, VA and got my hooks in as a Junior Tech Writing/Editor. From there I worked for a couple months as a Bid Writing/Editor for a major corporate/government travel management company in Fairfax, VA.

I have 10+ years' experience in Customer Service; 5 years in Retail/Customer Service Management; 4+ years' experience in multiple sorts of writing, blog writing, copy editing, bid writing, and proofreading.

Matthew's Journal

No? Well he was a photographer who took a Polaroid every day, until the day he died. I've been tremendously inspired by his idea and his dedication. His photographs, at least many of them, are on display on his website, here. I fell in love with the nostalgia and story-telling of it all.
