Matthew O.

Only Slightly Stereotypical Asian

Co-Founder/Editor-in-Chief/Website Administrator

Hi, I'm Matthew, an army brat in 11th grade currently stationed at Camp Humphreys in South Korea ( which is tons of fun, but confusing for a Korean - Japanese - Chinese - Hawaiian - American). Born at Ft. Lewis, WA, I've also lived in Princeton, NJ, West Point, NY, Ft. Leavenworth, KS, Schofield Barracks, HI, Ft. Huachuca, AZ, and most recently, Carlisle Barracks, PA. As a music nerd and percussionist, I have a passion for both marching music and classical music and invest a lot of time into band and drum line. I also enjoy making videos and composing music for my YouTube channel, MattMix Media.
