Matthew Hickman

Matthew was born and raised near Savannah, Georgia. After graduating from UGA he made several questionable career decisions. One of these included a plan meticulously outlined on yellow legal pad to buy the dive bar where he and his best friend feigned employment. The other was an equally ill-advised foray into law school, which he briefly attended in 2009. In 2010 he moved to Los Angeles and became a writer. His mother is still coming to terms with the decision. You can follow him at
