Matthew was born and raised in South Burlington, Vermont. At the early age of 16, while excelling academically in math and science, his passion was found in coding. It was at this same age that he was introduced to the blockchain as well as taking his first look at blockchain source code. Entering UNH, at the age of 18, his passion for coding now focused on the blockchain. Thus the vision of CampusCoin was born in 2014. He then continued to expand on his blockchain knowledge while also expanding his conceptual design for the layout of what CampusCoin was to become. While obtaining his Mechanical Engineering degree, he and Bryan met that year and began building the vision of CampusCoin together. He brought the vision to fruition through establishing CampusCoin, and continues to advance CampusCoin in the direction that helps provide an opportunity for students worldwide to advance at every level. Matthew at 23, has brought something of great value to the world that shall continue to shine and grow with a purpose and focus for students in all countries of the world.
