Matt

I am constantly curious and love learning and building in a variety of ways. I am an analytical problem solver, not satisfied just knowing that something works, I need to know how it works.

Having studied Philosophy, Psychology, and Education, I am interested in how people use technology, what facilitates productivity and ease of use, and how problems can be solved in new ways. I am excited by the potential to contribute to meaningful work as a software developer.

I built my first website while I was working as a photojournalist to showcase my portfolio. While teaching Physics, Chemistry and Biology, I studied JavaScript in my spare time and built teaching tools that I used to help with lesson planning.

I incorporated a variety of technologies into my lessons and extracurriculars, including introducing students to coding. The more I learned about software, the more I wanted to work with it!

Since formally studying computer programming, I possess strong front end skills and particularly enjoy working with React and other JavaScript frameworks and libraries to create interesting and engaging user experiences. I also have an in-depth understanding of the backend, being versed in many SQL and NoSQL databases and optimization techniques.

I pride myself on my communication skills, coming from a background in science education, I have experience explaining technically complex things in clear and concise ways.
