Hello everyone!

My name is Matthew Reece. I'm excited to be part of the LibriVox community.

I am a vocal music teacher in Illinois, although my home is in Iowa. My wonderful wife and children are my whole world.

I will be posting a test recording soon, so that I can get started recording chapters right away!

Please visit my professional portfolio at http://portfolio.reecezone.net and podcast at http://drumcast.reecezone.net to learn more about me.

Welcome, Matthew!

I can put you in the catalog right away, if you like. Do you want to be known as Matthew Reece in the catalog (what shows up by each section you read)? And would you like your portfolio link to be what your name is linked to in the catalog?

Thank you for your quick reply!

I'd like to be known as Matthew Reece in the catalog, and the portfolio link would be great.

Thanks again!

Here's your very own catalog page:

I have mine bookmarked to keep track of what sections I have to read. When you claim sections, they'll show up on that page. :)

Welcome! My mom was raised in Davenport, Iowa, but I've lived all my life in California. I visited Davenport for the first time a few years ago (got to see the house that my great-grandfather built on Grand) and loved it. Lights on the fountain at Vanderveer Park! Duck Creek! The park down by the river, near the old fire station and across the street from the ice cream parlor... the whole town was beautiful and the people were SO friendly.

Thanks for joining us - have fun!

Probably the first of many small-world moments... Our home is two streets over from Grand Avenue, and not far from Vanderveer. I walk the dog to the park and ride bikes with the kids along Duck Creek. It's a great place to call home. Thanks for your lovely sentiment!

Wasn't Davenport where they had all the flooding a couple years ago? If so, how are things recovering?

We did have some pretty hard-hit areas, but everything is essentially back to normal along this stretch of Old Muddy.

The city made some infrastructure improvements that helped avoid so much damage from this year's late-season floods.
