Matthew Espinosa Biography, Age
The social media phenomenon was born on July 7, 1997, in Woodridge, Virginia. For his high school education, he attended Bishop Ireton High School. Matthew initially wanted to venture into the world of athletics. He played lacrosse and football while in high school. Matthew has always wanted to be famous but it turned out that a career in athletics wasn’t the way it was going to happen for him.

Matthew’s time on Vine and Youtube has seen him work with names like JC Kaylen and Kia Lawley, who are also social media sensations. Michael’s persona and his “cool factor” have a way of grabbing the attention of even the most irritable viewer. This is part of the reason he has risen to the top of the pile of social media celebrities.
His consistency on the platform and collaborations with other Viners and Youtubers quickly turned Michael into a serious celebrity, enough for him to be mobbed on more than one occasion. Sometime in 2013, Matthew Espinosa showed up at the Tyson’s Corner Mall located in McLean, Virginia. Apparently. the social media man had underestimated just how famous he was. Upon recognition by other people in the store, people began to crowd around in droves, causing a little riot amongst the thronging crowd. The Police had to step in to prevent the situation from escalating.
Owing to the experience of 2013, Matthew made another public appearance in 2015, this time at the VidCon grounds. He came in a disguise but it proved futile as he was promptly recognized and had to relive the experience all over again.
Espinosa is more than just another Viner and Youtuber though. He is also an actor and entrepreneur. In 2016, he made his big screen debut in the movie Be Somebody.

Due to Matthew’s hunger to be famous, his father, Rafael Espinosa started calling him “Mr. Hollywood” as a way of teasing him. In retrospect, the name turned out o be more of a prophecy than a tease.
