Hi, I'm Matt.
I am a generalist and don't know how to describe who I am. Instead, here are some of my interests in no particular order:
- Software and Web Development
- Language Learning
- Reading (Sci-Fi/Fantasy)
- Gaming (Board/Video) and Game Design
- Computer Science
- Cognitive Science and Online Learning
- 3D Graphics
- Software UI/UX and Product Management
- Virtual Reality/Mixed Reality
I grew up and went to school in Idaho, then lived in Tokyo for six years, and now live in Salt Lake City. I am the Vice President of Product at Innovative Language Learning and author tech courses for Pluralsight. I'm married to Jaimee and my cat's name is Ansel.
I am not on social media. One day I want to set up a cat sanctuary. I do not enjoy hiking. When I was young I liked Pokémon so much that I got on the news.
Do certifications mean anything to you? Here's what I got:
- PMP (Product Management Professional) since 2017
- PMI-ACP (PMI Agile Certified Practitioner) since 2019
- CompTIA A+ since 2018
- CompTIA Network+ since 2019
- JLPT N1 (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) since 2013
- Kanji Kentei Level 5 since 2012
