Matthew Hui is the owner-operator of SKY Smog and Test Only, a small business specializing in performing smog check certifications for vehicles registered in California. As a no stranger to the SGV, Matthew grew up in Monterey Park and is a graduate of Mark Keppel High School. After completing his undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley in 2008, he returned back to Monterey Park and worked in Quality Assurance at Activision-Blizzard on the game, “Call of Duty.” In 2011, at 23, along with 2 other friends from high school, Matthew opened his first business “Fluff Ice,” a unique shaved ice concept that now operates as a food truck. In 2016, Matthew took over as owner-operator of “KY Smog”, a business that his dad “Kai Yee” left to him after his passing. In 2019, the business was renamed “SKY Smog” as a way to honor his father but also to think bigger.
In his free time, Matthew hangs out with his 2 dogs, Coco and Bing Bing, and plays tennis. He also performs as a DJ under the name “DJ $HERLOCK” and dreams of going on tour one day. Matthew is also one of the co-founders of MPAC (Monterey Park Arts Collective), a volunteer organization that works with the City of Monterey Park to produce “Electric Park,” a free semi-annual family friendly event that brings the local community together to experience the power of dance through Electronic Dance Music.
