Hi there, I'm Matt. I started in 2012 on a simple premise: to explore an interest in writing while physically wandering and pondering about the next steps of my career and life.

What began as a simple email to friends, family, and colleagues quickly evolved into a forum for me to learn in public — not only how to write, but also who I was and who I wanted to become. But more importantly, this blog has connected with thousands of people around the world who are on a similar mission: to live deliberately.

Over the years I've sent hundreds of postcards around the world to new readers and have connected with thousands more digitally. I decided from day one to keep GiveLiveExplore ad-free, and I plan to stick to that.

If you've enjoyed any of my writing over the years and want to help me keep this site, newsletter, and the postcards up and running, I'd love your support.
