I'm Matt. A Senior Front-end Developer. I've been building & designing for the web since the early Naughties.

I've had a wide exposure to an array of technologies and methodologies over the years, having worked for Software Houses, Creative & Digital Agencies, Startups, & NGOs as well as running my own businesses.
I have an eye for detail and an appreciation for aesthetics & try my best to apply design thinking to all areas of my work.
