Matthew Tye, also known by his nickname C-Milk and YouTube pseudonym Laowhy86, is an American vlogger and video producer based in Binghamton, New York. Known for producing a variety of videos focusing on Chinese topics alongside his wife and friends with a focus on his family, Matthew is best known for his work alongside his filming partner Winston Sterzel, also known as SerpentZA.


Tye was born in Binghamton, New York, on December 27, 1986. He went to China to work as an English teacher and build custom motorbikes.[1] Known for traversing rural China by motorcycle, his journeys have been documented throughout his stay in China. Tye also co-hosts another YouTube channel, ADVChina, where he and fellow vlogger Winston Sterzel (SerpentZA) ride their custom-built motorcycles around their home province of Guangdong and discuss China-related topics in a talk show format.[2] The duo released their four-episode documentary Conquering Southern China for on-demand streaming on Vimeo[3] and Amazon Video in 2016. A Kickstarter-funded sequel, Conquering Northern China, was released in late 2017.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

In 2013, he married Vivienne Wei, a Southern Chinese woman. The couple's first daughter, Olivia, was born in 2016, and their second daughter Lucia in 2019. The family formerly resided in Wei's hometown Huizhou, China until they relocated to Tye's hometown Binghamton in 2017.[13] In 2016 he postet a video titled Why It's HARD to Have Chinese Friends that went viral. The video was “based on generalizations rather than social science”. [14]
