You May Not Know About Matt:

Matt is married and has three kids. His family is everything to him and the motivation for what he does. He volunteers with his kids’ youth groups and is very active in their lives. To keep up with family life and work, Matt wakes up at 4:15 every morning to get a fast start to his day. He is not afraid of anything including strange and exotic foods. The strangest thing that Matt has tried is an Italian delicacy called “Formaggio Marcia” (which is literally translated into “Rotten Cheese”). This very special cheese is made when a wheel of cheese is left out so that larvae can get into it and eat all of the insides. The larvae then leave behind a smooth and pungent spreadable “cheese” that can then be spread onto bread. Yes, it’s a real thing. Matt tried it once but has not tried it again since.
