Matthew has various interests in issues surrounding sustainability and "renewability". He currently studies Renewable Materials here at OSU, while running a renewable eyewear business named BOSKY on the side. He is interested in renewable plastics (because petroleum plastics are inherently evil), sustainable new product design, and making world social issues a mainstream concern for movement towards resolve. In his spare time he enjoys melodic beat boxing, using synthesizers for electronic music, and mountain biking! He hopes to move to Europe after school to learn and work in the biobased materials industry in order to one day overtake the petrochemical industry. Hazah!  He hopes to spread the SSI's ideas of sustainability in order to get multitudes of students involved in the program. In order to change the world we need to change the way people think and respect the world they live in says Matthew.
