Matthew Brownsword

Former Vice President and Managing Editor of Media

Matt is a senior from Walpole, Massachusetts studying political science. Matt is the former Vice President and Managing Editor of Media after starting his Herald career as a sports writer and editor. Though his focus lies with his more successful sports teams like the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Manchester City and North Carolina basketball, Brown athletics will always be on Matt's twitter timeline through tick and thin. And he'll wear a Patriots James Develin jersey on Saturday and Sunday to prove it.
