Matthew graduated from UNM with a BFA in 2004. He will be remembered for his passions for art, running, and poetry. No one will be able to forget his devotion to comics as an art form, his passion for storytelling, or his encyclopedic knowledge of and deep passion for music. Matthew will be forever missed by his family and his group of friends, whom he considered his second family.
