About

Matthew Williamson has worked in many forms of media, entertainment, and academia for over a decade now. Starting with The Gamer's Quarter in 2003, Matthew was the Editor in Chief of this publication branch off of niche website Insert Credit. The magazine focused on a literary look at video games, a perspective that was not commonly taken at the time. After that Matthew went to work for Play Magazine until the magazine's demise in the Fall of 2009.

After that Matthew began working with other publications such as Broad, the Women's Studies and Gender Studies program magazine for Loyola University, and writing academic papers. While working on these things, Matthew was also working extensively on photography, becoming the photographer for Here, Chicago, a monthly community story telling event. He now volunteers regularly for publications as a consultant and editor, and within the local LGBTQ community.
