Behind the words written here is a man, Matt Edwards. I live and work in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – my hometown that I love – with my wife, Dana, and kids, Allie and Jude. While I’m in no rush to move, I’m always happy when I get to explore more of the world and add to the list of places I’ve visited. I’m an avid consumer of books, articles, movies, and music and readily share my thoughts and feelings with those willing to listen and have great conversations.
I’m passionate about people, leadership, and health and wellness because all three together are what allow us to do great things. People because the world is full of tremendous individuals and I consider myself fortunate to be surrounded by the amazing group I call my family, friends, and co-workers. Leadership because I want to positively impact the lives of others and thrive on bringing people together who believe in and drive towards a common purpose. And Health and Wellness because I believe we can support one another in finding balance and happiness in life through the interconnectedness of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and wellness.
When I started this blog years ago, this was my “About” line:
At any moment of the day one of two things is happening: either my genius is being put to waste and I need an outlet, or I’ve been drinking and I’m truly a wasted genius.
Fortunately, I’ve grown significantly since then. The drinking part may still be true on occasion.
