Matthew is a senior studying Computer Science at the College of Saint Scholastica. Not content with only working with computers, Matthew also performs in the CSS Theater, studies business, finance, economics, the physical sciences, and loves to go ballroom dancing. He is a voracious reader and has lofty aspirations. His hobby is to learn about as many different fields, and about as many different topics, as he can.
Matthew has earned the Eagle Scout Rank during his membership in the Boy Scouts of America, the most prestigious and difficult award to earn, requiring such things as volunteer time, the study of various topics such as First Aid, Physical Fitness, Finance, Swimming, and Citizenship, and the completion of an Eagle Scout Leadership Project.
In college, Matthew is a member of the CSS Steel Band, where he plays the lead pan (with just a touch of double seconds pans too), the Ballroom Dance Club, Computer Club, and is an occasional writer for the Saint Scholastica newspaper, The Cable. This year he also directed the early spring theater performance at CSS, titled Laundry and Bourbon.
In high school, Matthew played the tenor saxophone in a symphony band, and he was a representative in the student council, a member of the knowledge bowl, math team, and chess club, President of his National Honor Society branch, and he performed in every school play he could.
Matthew also enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
