Congratulations, you’ve found my site!

In case you’re wondering what is all about, I’ll let you in on the secret.


Yep. Me.

I have a ton of little projects. Hobby blogs. I’m a freelance writer. I’m a pretty decent photographer. I dabble in technology. I love aircraft and flying.

I do a lot of stuff. If you were seeking information on a specific role, I hope you’ve found my other site that is relevant to that topic. If not, that’s alright, I’m sure I can steer you in the right direction from here. Just find a relevant page in the site menu, read the overview, and head off to the other site.

About Matthew Everett

Where to begin?

It was a drizzly Tuesday…no. Let me just begin at the beginning.

I was born in 1986 in Maryville, TN. I’ve lived in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains my entire life and I will probably die here. I went to public schools and state university. Specifically, I received a B.A. in Geography with a minor in Linguistics from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and I learned to write.

Honestly, I’ve lived a pretty average life.

Along the way I got married, we got a mortgage, and we got a dog. That’s when things got interesting. You see, I had also picked up an addiction to aviation and started a…’non-standard’ career. That is to say, my income is currently little more than a grand experiment in freelancing. Instead of getting up, driving to work, and cashing checks, I slip out of my home office for short periods of sleep. It’s not all puppies and rainbows, but I can’t imagine going back.

While I’m not working, I do a little flying and some photography. Unfortunately, both can be pretty costly hobbies, so I also maintain some hobby blogs to keep me sane until I win the lottery.

So now that you read all that here’s how I tend to summarize all this: Matthew Everett is a private pilot, photographer and aviation writer.

Pretty concise, huh? Well, I’d prefer it said commercial pilot or flight instructor, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with that.

Anyway, that’s me. If you’d like to know more or simply say, “hi,” “bye,” or anything else really, feel free to shoot me an email at Unless you are spamming me, I’ll respond.
