Matthew Pawlik

Matt Pawlik writes about all things outdoors in Southern California. He took over The Wild newsletter for The Times from July to September 2022. An avid Angeleno, Pawlik spends his free time searching for natural respite in our busy city, especially with plentiful coast live oak, views of the downtown skyline and a banh mi sandwich. When he needs to escape L.A., you can find the mattitude camping under the stars in Joshua tree or backpacking through the Sierras. Matt serves as the Lead SoCal Writer for the Weekend Sherpa, a weekly newsletter that brings the outdoors to your inbox.

Matt is currently revising Wilderness Press’ Afoot and Afield: San Diego.
