"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
Hi, I'm Matt and I'm a Systems Engineer.
I've lived all over the world, first due to my father's work, and later due to my curiosity. NYC, San Francisco, Berlin, Edinburgh, Honolulu, and more.
Most of my career has been consulting for tech companies and helping them speed-up and automate their systems.
Currently, I'm based in Bucharest, Romania and NYC (and often on U.S. timezones regardless of location).
