MATT JAFFE: WRITING FROM THE GROUND UP

Matt Jaffe is an award-winning journalist and author who has spent much of his career writing and reporting on the environment and culture of California, the Southwest, Mexico, and Hawaii. He worked as a senior writer at Sunset Magazine and has been honored for articles on subjects from aerospace to food, and on locations from Alaska to Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. The common thread is an ability to get inside a story in a way that makes readers feel that they are right there on the ground, whether it’s the streets of L.A. or a Hawaiian cloudforest trail.
