Capitol School of Austin

Matthew: 2000

Matthew graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2014. Married last March, and he and his wife, Jessica, bought a house in San Marcos. Matthew has two full-time jobs (adjusted for inflation, he is earning more than I did when I left graduate school with a Ph.D. in Finance!). His “day” job is designing video games that go into slot machines for Everi Systems in Austin. His “night” job is as the National Poltical Reporter for ShareBlue.com, a progressive website and media outlet. Matthew writes around 15 articles a week for their website allowing him to have interviewed Beto Rourke and Corey Booker, among others.

He is also, on occasion, a "talking head” for the web newscast “Cheddar TV.” He has approx. 58,000 twitter followers and has been quoted in the Washington Post, and by Nancy Pelosi’s staff in press releases. The Chapman family is very grateful for the start he got at Capitol School.
