Hi I'm Matthew

I've grown up in Seattle Washington and Utah. I love to draw and act. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to draw. I love to write, even though I don't have a very good span of vocabulary. I love to act. I am the 3rd oldest of 8. I'm 19 years old, and want to attend UVU collage. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later- Day Saints; serving in the Virginia Chesapeake mission. I've participated in my community theater. I've been in Annie Get Your Gun; gaining the roles as an Indian Boy and a Russian Dancer. The Wizard Of Oz; gaining the roles as a Kansas folk (one of the two men in the row boats) and a Winkie (one of the wicked witches guards). I was also in Peter Pan; gaining the comic relief role as a Pirate. I've participated in the Ballet West production of The Nutcracker. I was also in The Fiddler on the Roof as the Beggar and in A Christmas Carol as a poulterer, fishmonger, the judge, and Mr. Hawkins.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into the church, I still feel and observe the happiness that has been in my life and the lives of others. I continue in this church because I want to remain in this happiness. I don't know where I'd be without the teachings of the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission to Chesapeake Virginia. I want others to know who they are and know why they/re here as I know! I want others to know that they're not alone and that they have a loving Heavenly Father who knows them, they're challenges, and no matter what they've done, LOVES them UNCONDITIONALLY. I want to share my light with others and show them how THEY can have the same light and happiness as I do.
