Matthew enjoys live music of all types and is an avid cinema buff. One of his favorite movies is Groundhog Day. He also enjoys foreign films, action-adventure, and the occasional romantic comedy/drama. Surprisingly, Matthew’s pet peeve about both of these aforementioned interests, is their high-volume in public venues—to help with this Matthew carries low attenuation ear plugs with him at all times. These ear plugs do not muffle the sound but rather reduce the volume, so he can enjoy live performances without suffering temporary hearing loss. He has always enjoyed learning how and why things work, combining the scientific theory with practical application and feels this has been invaluable as a home inspector, as it aids in discovering and diagnosing a wide variety of symptoms and conditions where the cause is not immediately obvious.
