Meet Vine sensation Matthew Espinosa

If you don't know him yet, you will. Matthew Espinosa is already a star -- but not on the big screen. At least, not yet. Espinosa's fame was born on social media, and we got a chance to hang out with the D.C. area kid who might just be on the brink of making it big!

Even if you don't know his name, your teenager probably does. It's all in the followers, likes, and favorites, and Espinosa -- who is from Woodbridge, Va. -- is raking them in from all over the world. Now, his online success is crossing over into the real world.

Espinosa showed FOX 5's Lauren DeMarco how he does what he does on Vine -- and what he does is generate 6-second videos that are seen by millions. He puts a lot of effort into making those videos and knows just what it takes to make a hit.

Those videos have gotten Espinosa his share of attention. Hundreds of girls turned out for a meet-and-greet at Tysons Corner, and he has even been touring the nation with other social media sensations. Oh, and if that weren't enough, he has also been appearing at A-list events alongside celebs like Justin Bieber, Fergie and One Direction!

He tells FOX 5, "I love writing, I love directing, I love producing, I like acting. I want to be able to hit people in every single direction."

He has moved to Los Angeles full time now and says he is hoping to meet the right people and cross over to mainstream entertainment as well.

"You have a bunch of different celebrities who have been in the industry for ten to 20 years talking to you and giving you advice," he said. "You really are honing in on what they are saying because they have been through it all."

Espinosa says it is all about having a positive impact on people.

Matthew Espinosa -- it's a name you just may be hearing again in the near future.
