About Matthew

Going on his 10th year in the field of web, UI and graphic design, Matthew, located in a little town 30 minutes north of Atlanta, Georgia, has worked with several corporate firms in not only the US but in Italy as well, since graduating from the University of New Orleans with a Bachelor in Fine Arts.


His client base which holds international locations in India, Germany, Italy and the US has been growing since 2002. His focus in creative design and user experiences more so than coding being that coding is more logical and Matthew is left-handed. Matthew does some mean CSS coding when needed and all the fixins that go with it.


Matthew is married to a Native Italian (hence his experience abroad) and has two lovely daughters Liah (9) and Sadie Mae (6).


If you choose to hire Matthew for a project you will find he is extremely accomodating and a good "team" player. While he will make his best efforts to get your project finished and completed ASAP, understand that he does have a line so you may have to wait a little bit. But don't let that discourage you from getting a quote from him because the results will make up for it.
