UP-AND-COMING: Thoughhe’sayearawayfrom getting his degree in communications from UCSB, Matt Olivero just graduated from posting press releases on independent.com to reporting and writing full-fledged news stories.“ This is definitely more fun,” he said. “Writing is one of my passions, so it’s great to get the experience.” Originally from Lafayette, California, Olivero said he’s looking forward to moving to the ocean side of Del Playa Drive next fall. Things tend to get rowdy in that part of Isla Vista, so he’ll have to find a quiet space to keep reading, one of his go-to hobbies.
