My name is Matthew Salzano.

I am driven by my desire to inform and inspire others by providing unique insight and telling important stories in new, innovative ways.

I aim to accomplish this by dancing the line between academic and public; weaving the insights of cultural criticism with the accessibility and excitement of mass communication. I study the intersections of male homosociality, homophobia, religion, and media.

Here’s a brief summary of my story.

I study at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash. I expect to graduate in May 2018 with a double major: Communication and Women’s and Gender studies. I spent Spring 2016 abroad at the University of Oxford, where I studied Queer Theory and Film analysis with a tutor from the Department of English.

I work for Mast Media, the student-run media company at Pacific Lutheran which includes the newspaper The Mast and the TV Station Mast TV. I have served as a Culture editor, the Mast TV General Manager, and am now the Editor-in-Chief of The Mast.

I also write for PLU Marketing and Communications as a student writer. My writing appears on PLU.edu as well as in the award-winning PLU magazine, ResoLUTE.

I love writing and working with visual mediums like photography, video and page layout.
