Mathew was born June 20, 1989 in Glendale, Arizona, while he excelled in academia and sports at a young age, it was clear Mat danced to the beat of his own drum. For much of his mohawked teenaged years Mathew had a passion for skateboarding and the electric bass. While he was never very good at either, he never gave up. Mat enjoyed working with his hands and enjoyed taking on odd ball jobs. He was very proud of his work with marble as he should have been, it was beautiful work.
