Coverboy: Matt

He'd be Iron Man if he could yet he fears jumping from an airplane -- a coverboy paradox!

Matt is currently studying pre-med at Howard Community College and is hoping to pursue a career in dermatology. But it hasn’t always been about medicine. When the 20-year-old was a kid, he wanted to be a cop, or an FBI agent, or Major League Baseball player. In the end, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and pursue medicine. When he’s not hitting the books, Matt is hitting the weights at the gym. He also enjoys basketball, football and swimming. When out in D.C., Matt likes to go to Town Danceboutique.
