Hey, I’m Matthew and that's my face. I'm a developer who really enjoys winding between the frontend and backend, learning new frameworks, and finding solutions to challenging problems without losing focus on the product as a whole.
When I'm not coding, I'm often stuffing clothes and cameras into a backpack and filling up my passport book. I've been around the world twice, and have barely put a dent in my destination list. You also might find me nose deep in a book, barbecuing ribs, or bicycling somewhere.Resume
