Matt Vander Boegh graduated with a Master of Arts in Communication from Boise State University (2005), and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Boise State University (2003). He's been teaching communication classes at the collegiate level for 10 years and will continue doing so until he's too hobbled by running injuries to give any more of his wild lectures. In his spare time, he writes music for tv shows and commercials (if you're interested, you can hear many samples on his website www.vanderboegh.com). He has a boxer dog named Clarabelle, and a black cat named Fred. Vander Boegh resides in Nampa and lives in his hot tub during the winter.
