I'm Matt

I'm exploring the world of web design and development. While I have coded mobile apps and taught programming bootcamps in the past, I've become rusty over the past few years because I've spent most of my time working on datasets for research and data science teams.

So to get back to building apps, I've started going through freeCodeCamp certifications so I can refresh my UI/UX skills and bring them out of iOS and to the web. So far, I've worked through the Responsive Web Design, JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures and Front End Libraries certifications. Next up is the backend certification which focuses mainly on Node.js.

My ultimate goal is to build my wine note app using node.js and React. This is mainly a hobby for now, but depending on how this project evolves I'm considering turning this web app development into a side hustle or perhaps a new career.

Welcome to my portfolio.


I have 20 years of experience in Higher Education as a data scientist working on data pipelines, data visualization, and data dashboards. In addition to data science roles, I've worked on mobile apps and teaching iOS bootcamps.

I'm also a published author with five published books on iOS app development and R programming.

While I was at Penn State, I earned a Bachelors degree in Psychology (Research Methods and Computer Science emphasis) and later I completed a master's degree in Information Systems Management.

In my free time I like to cook with the family and fly FPV racing drones.
