Russ Matthews

Back for yet another year of hassling celebrities, ogling anime girls and occasionally writing things, Russ Matthews is now fully entrenched in his journeyman tour of the Daily Dragon staff. Russ grew up in the wilds of central Mississippi but has managed to overcome this rather significant limitation. After moving to Atlanta in 2000, Russ immersed himself in his "geek culture" and hasn't looked back since.

Russ cites Ambrose Bierce, Spider Jerusalem, and Peter Jennings as his major journalistic idols.
