About Matt Henry

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)
  • History
  • 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
