_ My name is Matthew Lynch. I am a professor, author, and activist, with a voracious appetite for knowledge. I despise complacency, and strive for perfection in every area of my life. However, to quote Philippians 4:11, “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am in.” I consider myself to be an iconoclast and a polemicist, with a penchant for playing devil's advocate. My social circle is small, comprised primarily of relatives and close friends who have been battle-tested. I may come across as aloof, but deep down, like most people, I’m a member of the “ghettocracy” (shout-out to Dr. Michael Eric Dyson!). Feel free to request my dossier or send me a query. This site was created to showcase my literary and academic projects, as well as to allow me to spread my voice to the world. I hope it’s listening!
