Somewhat of an autodidact, Matt taught himself BASIC-A programming at age 13 and C++ at age 14. Although he started with HTML when he was 15, he didn't get a chance to publish a real website until three years later, when he made a website for Brady's Meat and Deli, a small butcher shop that he still works for on his days off.
In his spare time, Matt likes to learn Mandarin Chinese, help out at malldatabase.com, teach himself new programming languages, read and help other people learn to use computers. He's also an active member of Drupal.org, and a personal member of the Drupal Association.
