My name is Mathew Sackrider

I was born and raised in Woodstock, Ontario. A graduate of St. Mary’s high school. Later graduating from Police Foundations with Fanshawe College at 21.

Rather than pursuing a job in law enforcement after graduating, I left Canada to pursue travel and life abroad. Living in New Zealand for 6 months and Australia for over a year and a half. Visiting other countries along my journey such as Fiji, Thailand, and France.

Returned to Canada with a foreign partner. Worked in manufacturing. Suffered an emotionally challenging separation and used it as fuel to carry my life forward. Started amateur bodybuilding for a few years.

Reconnected with my roots. Dabbled in Business and Biology courses. Began to write again. Became a proud Daddy to a beautiful baby girl. Suffered a debilitating injury to my spine and right arm. Used that as fuel to drive me into a new, more satisfying career for the future.

I am currently in the process of applying to Universities for Writing/English programs to enhance my knowledge in an area that is already of great passion to me. Always looking for new adventures. Always looking to spread positive energy and love to the world!
