matthew poon

Matthew is a man of many interests and many tricks. His play style is clean, precise, and inspired and once you talk to him for a while you’ll understand why. 

Matthew moved to the US from Hong Kong in 2014 and since then he’s learned English and Spanish, joined an improv group, took up bike camping and snowboarding, won Virginia States, and started a career in food science. It’s hard to imagine anything this guy can’t do; if you look away for a month he’ll probably become an astronaut. 

Matt is funny and kind and curious and talented and we’re so incredibly proud to have him on our team. Do yourself a favor and seek him out at the next contest he attends….you’ll be all the better for knowing him.
