Hi there! I’m Matthew.

I’m a self-taught developer and designer building magical software on the web.

I am a founding engineer (and lead designer) over at NewCraft, a hiring startup.

I spend my time curiously exploring tools to expand our cognitive capacity, ways to make hiring more equitable, and digital cities. If you are also curious about those things, please reach out!

Ready to chat?


I write regular entries in a journal about technology, business, history, and the future.
