Hi! My name is Matt Hershberger, and I am a professional writer and editor. I work as a Lead Producer at the Matador Network, the web's largest independent travel publisher. I blog at Catching Wise, write on ethical travel at Don't be a Dick and I've been published at a number of other sites, including Business Insider, The Daily Meal, Fox News, and, of course, Thought Catalog.

I write primarily about politics -- particularly on immigration, climate, and global human rights -- as well as about travel and culture. I also dabble in humor and webcomics. I'm currently offering my services as a writer and an editor on a freelance basis.
