Native Staten Islander Matt Burns has been preparing for competition since he was just 2 years old.  The 22-year-old says he’s just like all other college kids; except for his flair for air guitar.

Burns is known in the air guitar community as “Air-istotle.”   He burst onto the scene back in 2007 and since then, his love for leather, skinny jeans and fancy pleather have caught the eyes of many fans.

When he's not out competing in competitions, Matt works as a professional mascot for a minor league baseball team. 

MattypicSome of Matt’s favorite bands to perform to are Green Day, My Chemical Romance and Metallica.  Matt is currently the New York Champion and was voted No. 2 in the nation by U.S Air Guitar.  

Burns is determined to become No. 1.  

He plans to compete throughout the summer in New York, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.
