Get To Know Matthew

What was your first job?

Pushing carts and breaking hearts.

What is your favorite movie or TV show?

"Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson?" I probably know every single line, song, and scene in Dumb and Dumber, but it will still make me laugh out loud every time.

What websites can you not live without?

imgur is always there for me when I need to laugh.

What's your favorite part of working here?

People: "…"
Me: "……I build websites."
People: "Oh! That’s really cool!"

What is your earliest computing or Internet memory?

My middle school math teacher would let the top 5 students, who scored highest on the quizzes, play 20 minutes of Sim City during class. Those 20 minutes were worth fighting for.

Passion. I dig deep into my projects and never leave a stone unturned. When I start a project, I make sure I use all the resources I have available to their potential.

Do you have any pets?

If you could have any job, what would it be?

Getting paid to travel and write about my experiences.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Bruges. After my first visit, I fell in love and could see my self waking up every morning at 7, having a hearty breakfast, walking over to the town square for coffee, saying hello to all the people I have met over the years, and writing whatever pops into my head that day.

What was the first website you created or helped create?

My first weekend at SmartSites, we had a 24 hour hackathon where we conceptualized, designed, and created a social media promotion company called SocialJump.
