Hello! My name is Matt Wastradowski, and I am a travel and outdoors writer based in beautiful Bend, Oregon.

I’ve written about beer, outdoor adventure, and other travel topics for numerous outlets, including Outside, Northwest Travel & Life, REI Co-op Journal, andĀ OnTrak Magazine.

I’m also excited to co-author “Moon Pacific Northwest Hiking,” a guide for Moon Travel Guides that highlights the region’s best, most beautiful hiking trails. You can order the book from Powell’s, IndieBound, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Target.
