Matthew Odam is the restaurant critic and reporter at the Austin American-Statesman, where he also covers the local film scene and writes film criticism. The Austin native and seventh-generation Texas has worked for the Statesman since 2007.


Before coming to the Statesman, Odam co-edited Austinist.com, worked at an advertising agency and led tours of the Roman Forum, among other things.
