"When you don't create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. So create."
-Why the Lucky Stiff
Hey folks! I'm Matt and I'm a Systems Engineer.
I grew up (Middle School, High School, College) in the US Military communities in Germany.
I started doing programming/systems in '99 and have mostly been doing contract work since then, with several stints in leadership (CTO, VP Engineering).
Currently, I'm focused on training engineers to maximize their systems for growth and performance.
I'm based in Bucharest and NYC (and typically on U.S. timezones regardless of location).
