Matt Mayren is a fourth year student at CCSF and twenty-first year student at life. He’s hoping to major in English with a minor in History and maybe land a job as a teacher, but living out in the woods sounds good to him as well. Born and raised in the Bay Area, he spends most of his time listening to people complain or writing millions of stories in his head, some of which might actually make it to paper one day.
