Matteo L. Cerilli

Matteo L. Cerilli has been writing since he could hold a pencil and is extremely humbled that he’s able to share his passion. When he manages to pry himself from his laptop, he spends his time drawing or riding his skateboard through Burlington, Ontario, where he lives with his parents, little sister, and his number one partner in crime (his dog Zoe). Though he currently flips burgers for minimum wage, he will be attending York University for the Professional Writing program. Matteo credits the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets for most of his inspiration and spent six years training with them before aging out as a Chief Petty Officer 1st Class.
