Matthew proved himself capable of grasping complex problems involving large datasets and programming stable solutions. He was always very focused and worked very hard at the right tasks. Matt was a good team member who interacted very well with fellow technical staff and other non-technical staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew as a good PHP developer.

Matthew is a versatile and experienced writer/developer who excels at every task he takes on. His English is impeccable, his willingness to play with new technologies admirable, and his drive unstoppable. If you hire him to do anything, I guarantee I’ll like you less because he’ll have to sacrifice some of the time he’s giving me.
