Matthew Furman

Cary, Nc

About Me:

I am Matthew, I live in North Carolina, originally from up-state, New York. I also like spending time with my family & friends. My favorite color is orange. I like old school stuff like the VCR and the Cassette Walkman. I am a technology nerd and enjoy tinkering with technology both new and old. I spent several years volunteering and working for Thrift 2 Gift (formerly Thrift 'n Gift) a branch of the Seeds of Mustard Ministries. A non-profit thrift shop in Cary, NC. I currently work for Staples EasyTech and enjoy my work very much. I also do a bit of computer repair work outside of work for a hobby, See here for more details.

I challenge the norms of society and enjoy having fun and making people laugh. When I'm not playing around with this world wide web thingy I can usually be found on the telephone chatting with someone. On occasion I have been known to dress up as a Gingerbread Man and parade around town (see here). While I like technology, I am a bit resistant to change and never throw things away, so my home is full of obsolete stuff that refuses to break (see cassette tapes and rotary dial phones). Hey, I guess that's why my mom chose the Sanford & Son theme song for my ringtone.... anyway.. lol...
