Hello!

My name is Matt and I’m a programmer living in the Portland area. My interests are mostly around programming languages, distributed systems, and network security – and how to use those things to build elegant, automated, secure systems. I blog from time to time on whatever I happen to be working on currently.

When not programming I spend time with my wife and two daughters, read books, listen to podcasts, and occasionally enjoy the great outdoors here in the Pacific Northwest.
