Matthew lives in Newport News Virginia with his wife and two children. He started getting involved with local politics at the state level and started to notice the prevalence of religion in the government. Matthew is interested in making the world a better place for his children and believes that starts with using critical thinking and skepticism to better understand the reality that we live in. This also means building an accepting community of people who care and challenging negative stereotype of what is means to be an Atheist, a Skeptic, and a Secular Humanist.
