Matt's CV

Having spent nearly ten years in web and software development, I have worked in a wide variety of environments and have had exposure to a large array of technologies and methodologies. Now I feel like I’m in the perfect position to return to Speed as a Senior Systems Architect to enhance, improve, and develop software to specification, in a timely, efficient, and intelligent manner.

I love the challenges at Speed and the freedom to be creative in solving problems, hitting specification and using the technologies that fit the project best; with no political agenda behind the usage of technologies and methodologies, this suits me down to the ground.

Random Fact

The origin of my son’s name literally translates to “Lion King”. We didn’t realise this until after he was born.

As we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
