My name is Matthew Carlin and I'm a multimedia journalist and visual artist based out of Austin, Texas. I'm a graduate from the University of North Texas where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism.
I found my passion in live music photojournalism and continue to showcase the best artists from all over the world.
I grew up in the Austin area my entire life and have always been fascinated by the culture, music, and art scene here. I was very active in the local music scene growing up, having seen many great Austin bands play some of their first shows in the city.
My love for Austin's music culture is what made me want to pursue music journalism, therefore I went up to the Dallas/Fort-Worth Metroplex for college to discover what talent the cities had to offer.
In my time in DFW I interned for an Online Alternative music outlet called Crate Diggers Dallas and a Video Production studio called Cinderblock LLC where I interviewed local and national artists, contributed articles on upcoming acts, and photographed concerts all over the city of Dallas.
I'm currently a writer in Austin covering topics such as music, culinary arts, and nightlife.
