Welcome

Thanks for visiting. I'm Matt and I have been in the the Tech Industry since 2001. My career has primarily been as a full-stack Microsoft.NET developer. I do, however, have experience in other languages such as Java, C++ and PHP and will gladly work with them or any other languages / technologies as I enjoy learning new skills. I believe the understanding of the core principles of object oriented development is the primary skill; languages are merely syntax.

On a personal note, I enjoy outdoor activities, sports, and wood working. I will likely address you as ma'am or sir, and not because I think you're old. I also believe in firm handshakes and keeping my word. I have been happily married since 2007, and most of my free time is spent with my wife, son, and our two dogs.
