Hi, I'm Matt

I'm a hockey fan, developer, consultant, and startup enthusiast living in California. I enjoy writing, building web and mobile apps. You can view a list of some things I've worked on here.

I have worked on projects for Sidestep App, BrightRoll, Yahoo, Buffer, Orange Harp, and Apple. I focus on designing excellent customer experiences for the web and mobile.

I can help with building iPhone or iPad applications, website development, API development and integration, user experience design and testing or anything in that scope.
