In his role as a Senior Drupal Developer at Mediacurrent, Matt strives to create beautiful websites that push the boundaries of CSS yet are easy to modify. He has eight years of experience with Drupal including projects in theming and style-guide driven development, Drupal backend development, and DevOps.

Matt graduated from Arkansas State University in 2012 with a BFA in Graphic Design. He was the unofficial tech geek for his classmates, and he started his first development job during his internship at Pleth where he  quickly advanced to a lead developer position. Prior to Mediacurrent, Matt developed sites for Ashley Lighting, Jonesboro Chamber, Farm Credit Midsouth, and Lyon College. One of his proudest career accomplishments was the redesign of Travelport.com. He implemented a style guide using kss-node, including a series of full-page HTML mockups that the stakeholders could review while development was still happening behind the scenes. The style guide and front-end processes were both very successful, spurring him into further pursuits with theme-driven development.

Matt enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons and has been running the same campaign since mid-2014. 

He is a persistant problem-solver who likes to push himself to break through his comfort zone. Matt says his wife is the pillar in his life!
