The Matthew Girvin Story

Matthew Lee Girvin was born in 1964, February the 12th. He was born into a family with 3 other young boys, each separated by about 2 years apart — for a span of 10 years. The Girvin clan, as a generation, is a genetic mix between art and science — and in a manner — Matt became a kind of exemplar of that legacy. His life moved between the explorations of art in culture, languages and literature, boosted with a thoughtfully creative approach to living and building contributions to his communities — coupled and balanced with the objective nature of scientific strategies of international health.
