Nathan Mattise is a 24-year-old journalist originally from Scranton, Pa. He just finished up his undergraduate degree at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. As of September 2008, he is currently working for a major Northeast university, pursuing graduate studies on the side and taking any freelancing opportunities that come his way.
Mattise enjoys a variety of things when he’s not busy being an aspiring journalist/novelist/writer. He is passionate about live music, good fiction, staying in shape, chivalry, Emmy Rossum, board games, taking naps in his jeans, awkward moments, indie rock, tennis, soccer, basketball, bocce ball, dancing, t-shirts, cereal, singing loudly on car rides home, artsy women, reality television and many other of life’s unique delicacies.
Mattise has worked as a Little League umpire, a youth soccer referee, a high school soccer coach and a seasonal sales assistant at both Dick’s Sporting Goods and The Gap. His most relevant (and enjoyable) work has been his writing for several professional publications in the past four years. His published works can be found below.
