Hi, I'm Matthew.



I'm a software engineering professional with experience in security, web, and distributed systems. Currently, I'm a Senior Software Engineer at Optiv Security where I work to provide a great experience to both external and internal customers who use our software services, tools, and APIs. I love how rapidly this industry evolves and I'm always interested in exploring new technologies, languages, and hearing about what sorts of exciting things people are doing.

Prior to my current position, I worked in ground systems intelligence at Northrop Grumman and later with a very talented and creative team at Ping Identity. Before that, I even had the pleasure of doing development and multimedia work at the now defunct Rocky Mountain News where I won an Emmy for producing a documentary chronicling the paper's demise.

I have an MS from Johns Hopkins University and a BS from Metropolitan State University.

If you're involved or interested in the wonderful world of software systems or security, I'd love to connect with you.
