Matthew Boyer is a School of Arts and Science junior majoring in political science with a minor in German. Matthew is also pursuing his documentary film certificate. He was born in Central Pennsylvania, otherwise known as Pennsyltucky, Amish country or Hershey’s Chocolate World. Although not an Amish person himself, Matthew loves something the Amish exercise everyday: liberty. When he isn’t saving the world from big-government tyranny, Matthew enjoys hiking, traveling and kicking it old school with his fraternity brothers. Matthew hopes to one day rid the world of credit cards and replace the Federal Reserve with diamonds and golden goose eggs. You can find him running between his internship, the radio station and Hansel and Griddle. One can always catch Matthew with an android charger, multiple pens and the best gum on the free market. Oh — and he is from the same hometown as the lead singer of Poison and star of the VH1 hit-series Rock of Love, Bret Michaels.
His column, “Legalizing Life,” runs on alternate Wednesdays. Follow him on Twitter @MattJBoyer.
