Who Am I

My name is Matt, not Matte, I am currently a 3rd year IT student with a passion for website development and graphic design. Through my current degree I also hope to gain skills in app development and server maintenance. I also have skills in social media management, advertising and photography.

I am able to work well in a team environment, I take criticism and use it to improve, I take pride in my work and focus on the small details. I am proactive and am always looking for ways to improve my skills and explore new territory.

My Work

La Hacienda 101

A personal/family project in which I was required to develop a basic website, design promotional material and also establish and monitor a facebook page.
This website also includes and email based booking system, which I intend to upgrade soon


A friend approached me with a bit of fun project, a simple logo, that he may/may not use in the future, and a 2-sided business card design. At the time I didn't have the knowledge of how to do a virtual render of how the design will appear when printed, I used the Vistaprint product preview system to render.
