Matt Christy: "I grew up in Franklin Tennessee, drawing before I could talk. I graduated from Watkins College of Art and Design back in 2007 with a degree in fine art. After school, I wrote art reviews and lived in an intentional urban gardening community here in Nashville. Then, I went to grad school at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. I recently graduated and moved back to Nashville to reconnect with my family and friends. I’m completing my first novel."
