Matthew Haines

Matt is a freelance writer who has lived in New Orleans for nearly 10 years - though he understands that doesn't mean his Uber driver will call him a local anytime soon. He hiked the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in 2017, and is now writing a book about that journey, which you can read along with daily accounts of the bizarre adventures he gets into around New Orleans at matthaineswrites.com.
