My name is Matt.

I like making web pages.

And lots of other things.

About Me

There are a lot of phrases that people use to describe what I do—Web Developer, Web Designer, Web Programmer, Code Monkey. Personally, I don't really like the term Programmer because it conjures up the image of a guy that you lock in the basement and slide pizza and Mountain Dew under the door to produce whatever code you need. If it were up to me, I think I might like to be called an Internet Scientist. But the point is that I build websites for people, and work like mine does tread into the territory of programming, so I accept the title begrudgingly.

If you have a project that you want me to work on, please email me at

I live in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. I'm currently working on my own projects, and doing short-term freelance work. Outside of web work, I've played bass in a few bands, previously in Low Lustre for a long time, and a shorter time in The Snails. Sadly, I’m not actively playing in public at the moment.

About My Site

It is quite a few years old, and like all developers, I can’t wait to redesign and redo it with the latest web magic. Your own site is always the last to get updated...

I've worked with a fair number of web hosts over the years and Media Temple is the best I've used. If you're hosting more than one site like me, it's a no-brainer.
