Matt McEvoy

Matt McEvoy completed a Bachelor of Music degree between Auckland and Otago Universities. Later, a holiday job at an Auckland tech company turned into 10 years of working in communications technology around Europe and finally Qatar, where he joined a small team creating the first outpost of Vodafone in the Middle East. Returning to Auckland, Matt now spreads his time between teaching piano, accepting the occasional local technology contract and writing, with a particular interest in social history and the diverse stories of extraordinary people who are seldom given a voice in New Zealand culture. His first book, The Grey Lynn Book, was published in 2018.
