Matthew Reed Baker

Before joining Boston in June 2007, Baker was an associate editor at ForbesLife, where he ran the research department and wrote about arts and travel; a staff writer at media watchdog Brill's Content; and a researcher and copy editor for such publications as National Journal, Rolling Stone, and Rick Steves's travel books. He earned a double-major B.A. in English and Philosophy from Yale University and an M.S.J. from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. He eternally thanks his parents for taking him to see foreign-language art films by age 5, the hallowed galleries of MoMA and the Uffizi by age 10, and David Mamet plays by age 12—and for letting him play his Sonic Youth and electric Miles Davis records in the car as a teenager.
