Matt Strangwayes has varied works published in several mediums. A seasoned copywriter, journalist, interpretive writer, creative writer, and songwriter, he finds inspiration in just about anything that crosses his path.

Matt’s lifelong fascination with the desert southwest and all its critters brought him from New York State to Arizona in the 1990’s, and he has not looked back. As the Phoenix Zoo’s Interpretive Content Manager, he has the privilege of learning astounding new things about the natural world every day. His favorite Beatle is Paul, with the bombardier beetle a close second.

The Endangered Animals of the Southwestern United States is the first work for Pygmy Giraffe that Matt has contributed. The next is a chapter book series about a very adventurous Galapagos Tortoise coming in 2020.
