Matthew, currently 25, was born and raised in Ohio. He grew up as a middle child between two sisters. Although he loved to play every type of sport, he ended up choosing swimming when he went into high school. Luckily for him, he got much faster in high school and was able to go visit different colleges. After much deliberation and help from parents, he chose to head down south to Clemson University. After three years of swimming and school, a girl named Tori came to swim at Clemson as he was entering his senior year. It didn't take him too long to realize she was the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
Currently he is working for a small startup company in Charlotte, NC as a Software Engineer. He also does some freelance website design on the side. After spending 9 months in Cincinnati and 7 hours away from Tori, he finally gets to see her almost every weekend with a short 2 hour drive from Charlotte.
