Hi, I’m Matt. I am a writer, filmmaker, and animal advocate currently enrolled in New York University’s Master’s program in Animal Studies. This is a place to talk about nonhuman animals, and the ways in which they intersect with us human animals.

My hope is to provoke thoughtful discussion and action around new ways of conceiving our many relationships with animals, in an attempt to improve their lives and cultivate a more empathetic world.
