About me

Hi, I'm Matt.

I was born and raised in Delaware County (DELCO), which is right outside of Philly, and am currently posted up in Washington, DC. Some of my personal and professional interests are listed below. Along with that stuff, I also enjoy web design and development: this site is exhibit A. My plan is to write about some of these things -- for my future self to reference, mainly -- but if you like any of these things too, you may enjoy what I post on this site. My goal is to try and make my writing at least somewhat informative by plugging the various content gaps I've discovered while surfing the web.
