Matthew B. Thompson is a native Texan and an avid fan of science, science-fiction and history. He has a background in physics and biology with a very good understanding of engineering and evolutionary genetics. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout at a young age, but was stricken with a very serious tumor shortly after earning a Bachelor of Science degree.
He beat the odds, even though he had less than a 1% chance of survival. To shock his doctors even further ... he started walking again. To EVERYONE'S amazement ... he got married. He is now the stay-at-home father for their small child.
