Matt began developing the Star Character Series when he couldn't find any teaching materials on the IB Learner Profile that were appropriate for his students. While developing the series he opened Liv & Blue Publishing, LLC in early 2018. He's worked as a classroom teacher for over 14 years in public, private and International Baccalaureate schools in Florida, Germany, and the British Virgin Islands with ages ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade. He now writes and designs for the communications team at an international school in Germany and continues to develop Liv & Blue Publishing. He's always open for questions, feedback, ideas and salutations.
