I have been working with Matt for several years now and am very happy with his work. He has been both an author and a technical editor for us, and his ability to thoroughly explain complex concepts in an easy-to-understand way is invaluable for us. He is also excellent at taking a new topic, researching it, and bringing a solid review of it to us. We are very glad he is a part of our team!

I worked alongside Matthew at Dow Jones Ltd where we were both on the same project. I found Matthew to be an excellent developer with an advanced knowledge of programming. He has good communication and he works hard. Matthew has a positive attitude about everything. I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending Matthew as an employee.
