Hi. I'm Matt and welcome to my personal website. This is the place where you can learn more about me, read my blog, see some of the code I have written, and learn about the different ways to get in touch with me. I'm a web developer with expertise in ASP.NET MVC, C#, PHP, jQuery, HTML, CSS and Wordpress. I currently live in Boston. When I'm not writing code, I like taking photos, creating Photoshop art, discovering new music and running in the occasional road race.
