Matt is a software developer based near Manchester in the UK.

After seeing that screencast in 2005, he ditched the murky world of C and C++ for a better future in web development.

Since that fateful day, he has spent much of his time taking client ideas and turning them into working businesses. He has built web apps, iPhone apps, automated infrastructure, hired staff and made his customers a lot of money.

When not building things for the web, he may be found climbing in the Peak District, walking his dog or enjoying the occasional beer, depending on his mood.

If you have an interesting project and a realistic budget, Matt is available for freelance work.
