About the Author
Matt Wasowski grew up in sports-crazed Cleveland but has lived in Brooklyn, NY since 1999. Matt has worked in a Marketing capacity at Wimba since June 2000 where he most notably created and still hosts the Wimba Distinguished Lecture Series, the only weekly online presentation program which brings experts from education and technology to the desktops of thousands of educators worldwide. Matt has spoken at countless conferences throughout the world and has become a true thought leader about distance learning. A believer in lifelong education, Matt not only boasts a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania (Go Quakers!) and an MFA from The New School, but he also hosts the critically-acclaimed Nerd Nite, a monthly gathering of experts in various fields who give light-hearted presentations about topics as diverse as human parasites, thumb-splitting shrimp, cemetery iconography, and the history of Coney Island. And perhaps most importantly, he's been named to his Central Park softball league's all-star team the last 5 years - and it's arguably one of the best leagues in the country.
