yellowstone falls headshotWho is Matt Weiss?

I am an author, adjunct instructor, and practicing professional geologist. I’m an advocate for math and science literacy with an emphasis on physical sciences. I live in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, USA with my two children.

Path to writing…

I’ve always been a fan of a good story. The ability of a story to take you places you’ve never been is what inspired me to start writing. In my interactions with students and commercial clients alike, I started thinking about the best way to convey the science involved in our work. My writing is an attempt to tell stories that awe and inspire people to explore the world around them.
