Growing up in Philadelphia was hard for Matt. A lot of his friends would smoke weed or do stuff that made him uncomfortable. His only hobbies as a kid were video games and his only true friend was his sister Brittany. Brittany was 2 years older than Matt but she cared about him they played video games all day after school and it was like that till the senior year of high school for Matt. His sister had a photography job at an NBE news station she was given a task to go and see the living conditions of the people of Chernarus and report back to them with photos for a documentary. Matt was very upset she was leaving so since it was spring break and she was going to a safe resort she invited him to the resort she was going to. Matt was so happy and he knew this trip would change everything between them.
