about

Hi, I'm Matt, and I'm a software engineer. My first computer, given to me by my uncle at age six, was a Toshiba T4700CT. While my friends were playing outside, I was playing with the QBASIC programming language. I ended up okay, though.

Right now, I specialize in Android development, which I've been doing since 2010. I justified my purchase of a Galaxy S by promising myself I'd earn back the purchase price through writing apps. I currently work Evernote on the Android team, where I implemented the UI for the Evernote Web Clipper, helped write Work Chat, and made crucial contributions to the business card scanning functionality.

Some of my other technical pursuits include restoration of old Apple products and attempting film photography. When I'm not staring at a screen, I'm either wandering around Austin or busy with my soldering iron and oscilloscope. I also love to ride my bike and take pictures. I currently study computer science at the University of Texas.

Here's my résumé, and here's my GitHub, if you are looking for those things.

things I like

photography

All pictures were taken with a Minolta XG1 camera. The color pictures used Kodak Ektar 100 film and were developed at Walgreens. The B&W pictures used Kodak Tri-X 400 or expired Ilford FP4 and were developed at home. All photos were scanned on an Epson scanner.
