My self-summary
Hello whoever you are. If you've not yet learned my name, it is Matthew. I'm 30 years old, live outside washington d.c., and fight a never ending battle for truth and justice. When people ask me what it is that I do, my quick answer is the actor/student/waiter combo. Enjoy my okcupid profile....unless you're creepy, in which case please feel free to enjoy someone else's profile.

The first things people usually notice about me
