So do you really want to know about me? No problem, lets go…

Mtandao Afrika Star Award 2006Wow!! It is a really honor having you here and sharing with you a little bit about myself. First and foremost, welcome to my little corner in the internet, Matrich which is a combination of my name(s). I spend most of the time on this planet in front of my laptop trying to cook something up out of nothing. I spend a good portion of this time trying to transverse the corners of the internet (if they exist) to evolve with this evolving internet and its technologies.

So who is this, Matrich?

I am Matovu Richard and I came into existence at around 14th October, 1984 and that makes me approximately 31 years. Ever since then, I have spent most of my life on this planet in Kampala, Uganda (Africa). I got hold of a computer at a very tender age unlike most kids especially in Africa and ever since then, I have proved incredible and indispensable about everything I do around a computer. I recently relocated and currently live in Texas, USA.
