Matt Suwak was reared by the bear and the bobcat and the coyote of rural Pennsylvania. This upbringing keeps him permanently affixed to the outdoors where most of his personal time is invested in bird watching and hiking. He presently resides in Philadelphia and works under the sun as a landscaper and gardener, and by moonlight a writer. An incessant questioning of “Why?” affords him countless opportunities to ponder the (in)significance of the great and the small. He considers folksy adages priceless treasures and is fueled almost entirely by beer and hot sauce.
He writes for the men’s magazine FactoryTwoFour and Gardener’s Path. He is preparing a full-scale audio production of his work Cherry Ridge for the professional podcast production company Ugly Blue Hat.
