PSC Guest Speaker

May 21, 2015 Matt Harbison

Matt is a Philosophy & Religion Major from UTC who has worked as a Youth Director at St. Peter's Episcopal Church since 2001. In 2011 he began a real estate & commercial photography business. In his spare time he pursues the stars through his camera, reaching for the unknown in the universe. Most recently, his short film, "Galactic: A Year in the Life of an Astrophotographer" premiered at the Chattanooga Film Festival.

 

Personal Statement:

"Too many things are instant and understood. Everyone needs lifelong purpose and some mystery! Looking into the heavens certainly provides both."
