Hi I'm Matt

I grew up hiking in beautiful Colorado, and now get to enjoy the rainy-green of Portland. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like gadgets, and am actually starting to get into Do-It-Yourself electronics using Arduino microcontrollers. I work at a large computer company and am a brand-new dad. I am trying to become more of a handy-man around the house, and I'd like to try to automate a lot of the daily home tasks. I've shoved asphalt, washed windows, mowed lawns, and now programmed for a living. I only live a few miles from work, so I'm able to ride my bike most days. I love messing around with home videos, Photoshop, and Maya.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon for the lifestyle stability, family-centric programs, the benefits it has given to me physically, mentally, and spiritually as I grew up, and because it is Jesus Christ's church. Although I grew up in the church, it wasn't until I was around twenty years old that I really began wanting to know whether or not Jesus is our Savior and whether this was His church. I had a special personal experience that has helped confirm these truths. I have received many other small experiences that continue to reinforce this knowledge in me.

How I live my faith

I used to be in charge of the cub scouts at church, but am now helping plan activities for the younger adults. My wife and I have also tried to organize a neighborhood watch...but I guess I haven't done too well :-/
