Hi!

I am Matthew Yancey, a graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
I'm in my 5th year here, and I'm graduating in May. Before this, I was a masters student
at the University of Florida and an undergraduate at Virginia Tech.

I'm married to the wonderful Kelly Yancey. We met as graduate students at Illinois, and it has
been magic ever since! We live a few blocks from campus in a beautiful house with one cat,
and we love to throw barbeques.
