Hi, I'm Matthew

I design and build software

Most of my professional experience is in security, web, and distributed systems. I'm currently a data engineer working in renewable energy solutions and grid services at Sunrun.

Prior to my current position, I worked with a talented and creative development team at Ping Identity, followed by Optiv Security.

Before getting into engineering, I had a brief, but rewarding career in journalism. I worked as a multimedia producer at the now defunct Rocky Mountain News where I produced Final Edition, an Emmy award-winning documentary chronicling the demise of the paper.

I have an MS from Johns Hopkins University and a BS from Metropolitan State University.

When I'm not neck-deep in code, I enjoy writing, reading, gaming, and exploring Colorado with my family and the most adorable dog in the world.


Matthew was always extremely professional and studious, frequently brought new and innovative ideas to the table, and was reliable on even the most daunting of projects.

With the perfect blend of curiosity and irreverence, he raised the right questions that I wish I would have thought of. My takeaway: Bring in Matthew early on any project.
— Ben George, Digital Marketing & Creative Director
He would take the response given to him, apply it a level above the originally intended issue he was trying to solve, and thus became an expert very quickly at what once was foreign.
