Matt is an incurable, lifelong nerd who has almost certainly spent more time in front of various screens and monitors than is strictly healthy. On the rare occasions that he manages to pull himself away from said screens and monitors, he's probably absorbed in a good book or scribbling down the latest half-formed story that's popped into his head.
