Hi, I’m Matt. It’s pronounced “or-TEE-lay.”

I’m a writer and editor at BuzzFeed. I’ve also written for,, College Magazine, and Side B. Just like everyone else at Vassar College, I majored in English (but also media studies). Unlike everyone else at Vassar, I moved to Manhattan rather than Brooklyn after graduation.
