Somewhat of an autodidact, Matt taught himself BASIC-A programming at age 13 and C++ at age 14. Although he started with HTML when he was 15, he didn't get a chance to publish a real website until three years later, when he made a website for Brady's Meat and Deli, a small butcher shop that he still works for on his days off.

His programming experience includes writing internal web applications with Java and JSP, ECMAScript (more commonly known as JavaScript), HTML, CSS, ColdFusion and Oracle-SQL for Environment Canada, writing Delphi/Pascal for Versabanq Innovations, writing UNIX-BASH scripts to make his workflow more efficient, and a little bit of C#. Matt started working as a contractor at PeaceWorks Technology Solutions in April 2009 before becoming a full-time employee in July 2009. In June 2012, Matt started working at Myplanet Digital as a Drupal Developer, and started working with OpenConcept Consulting in October 2013.

In his spare time, Matt likes to learn Mandarin Chinese, help out at malldatabase.com, teach himself new programming languages, read and help other people learn to use computers. He's also an active member of Drupal.org, and a personal member of the Drupal Association.
