Matthew grew up in Texas in a family with 5 siblings. His walk with Christ started when he was a young boy as his mother explained the gospel to him. His faith deepened in university when his relationship with Christ became more personal. Matthew got his bachelor's degree in physics at Sam Houston University and his masters degree in mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University. It was at Texas A&M when he first became interested in missions and Korea as he met many international students. After graduation, he spent three years as a Journeyman missionary with the IMB in Busan. Wanting to stay in Busan after his mission term, he eventually ended up at the Catholic University of Pusan where he is a professor in the department of Environmental Administration. He finished his PhD in mechanical engineering at Pusan National University in 2013. Matthew got married in 2012 and lives with his beautiful wife and 2 daughters. He is hoping for a few more, but is waiting for his wife to give him the green light.
