About the editor
My name is Matt Ralph. I attended summer camps in Ohio, Maryland and New Jersey growing up and continue to be involved as a volunteer for a summer camp in southern New Jersey. A former newspaper reporter, I live on the campus of Eastern University in Wayne, Pa., with my lovely wife (the assistant dean of students) and work in the marketing department of a college near Philadelphia.
In addition to loving summer camp and pop culture, I am an avid soccer (Arsenal and Philadelphia Union), baseball (Cubs and anyone playing the Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals or Phillies) and college basketball (Jayhawks) fan and love to read, write, listen to This American Life and watch shows like The Wire, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. My favorite bands include the likes of Wilco, The Flaming Lips, The Kinks, Danielson and many more. I’ve lived in Kansas, New Jersey, Indiana, Delaware, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Louisville, Ky., Chicago, Ill., and London, England.
