I'm Matt, a software engineer.

About Me

I'm Matt. I'm from Millbury, MA and I enjoy seafood, chocolate, computers, biking, running, and playing the guitar! I graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, MA in 2013. During the course of my education at Northeastern, I worked on three six month co-op positions at Boston area companies, where I received a wealth of experience working as a software engineer. In September 2013, I relocated to Seattle, WA. Until December 2016, I worked as a Software Development Manager at Cyanogen. More recently, I joined Facebook as a Software Engineer on Profile/Timeline and I could not be more excited! Check out my LinkedIn for more information about my career.


I create software of all kinds. Lately, I've been working with Android and contributing to Open Source Software. I've also been known to develop a web application or two.

CyanogenMod Contribution

During my time at Cyanogen the company, and in my free time as well, I have contributed to the alternative Android OS open source project called CyanogenMod. If you want, check out the hundreds of commits I have made to the project on CyanogenMod Gerrit Code Review!

Miracast Widget and Shortcut

This Android application is simple, but useful. With over 2,000,000 downloads, users all over the world have used it to mirror the screen content of their Android devices to Miracast receivers and smart TVs. The application is also open source and available on GitHub!

Heart Health

I participated in a contest hosted by Million Hearts and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT to create a new application for Americans to find their risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years. Hearth Health was the result. I didn't win, unfortunately, but I'm proud of the result! It's a Django web application. Check it out and check out the code on GitHub
