Matt Hormann is a Pasadena-based freelance writer. His "History Buff" column for the online magazine Hometown-Pasadena.com has proved one of the site's most well-read ongoing features, and now he is bringing his talents to San Marino Patch.com. As a writer of weekly history columns for the Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Montrose, and Arcadia Patch web sites, Matt unearths the interesting and sometimes surprising backstories of the towns we know and love. Matt's passion for historical research is matched only by a love of film, a subject which shows up often in his articles. (Who knew, for instance, that D.W. Griffith shot some of his earliest films in Sierra Madre?)
Born in New York and raised in Pasadena, he attended the L.A. County High School for the Arts, and is a graduate of Cal State University Northridge, where he received a B.A. in English.
