The story about a television executive attempting to start a 24-hour cable network for the homeless was nominated for an Eisner award. Since then, Matt accepted a teaching position at California College of the Arts where he's helped expand the college's graphic novel curriculum and now chairs CCA's MFA in Comics Program. Recent projects include guest editing the SF Weekly Comics Issue and the launch of the first city-wide San Francisco Comics Fest.
