Matthew Halverson edits Seattle Met’s award-winning Mudroom department, oversees its arts coverage, writes the Quote Unquote department and narrative features, and writes and edits service features.
Matthew joined the magazine as a senior editor in 2008 after a three-year stint as the executive editor of St. Louis magazine. Since then, his writing has earned eight Society of Professional Journalist awards and has been a finalist for three City and Regional Magazine awards, including his essay on shopping for a house while navigating a divorce (“This Must Be the Place”). In 2014, Mudroom won the CRMA award for best magazine department.
Seattle is home now, but Matthew’s heart will always be in the Midwest, where he grew up and eventually earned a degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. When he’s not in the office, he’s working around his house in West Seattle and building spaceships out of Legos with his son. And despite his title, no, he doesn’t wear a badge.
