About me

My name's Matthew, I was born in the pleasant town of Bow Island, Alberta and spent the first two years or so of my life living in Mexico. I'm currently living in Montreal (Quebec), where I moved a few years ago.

This is me! My friend beside me is named Bo, I'm sure you can tell which one of us is which 🐶

I'm currently working as a Software Developer at VIA Science, which makes communities cleaner, safer, and more equitable through real-time verification, integration, and analysis of private data.

My prior places of employ include being a Fullstack Developer at the employer branding agency Monster Strategic Talent Solutions (formerly known as The Foundry), and as a Fullstack and Mobile developer for the online Project Management platform Beeye. I completed my Computer Science degree at Heritage College in Gatineau, Quebec.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wonderful friends, swing dancing, listening to music (I have a special fondness for vinyl records), playing video games, tinkering with electronics, and photographing the local plants and wildlife.
