my name's matthew, i'm passionate about software engineering and cultivating communities.


i organize the seattle c++ meetup and seattle beer and code meetup.

open source

i help maintain proptest, a proptesty testing framework for the Rust programming language.


i enjoy learning new areas of technology by buiding minimal hobbyist implementations -- most of the time my curiousity leads me towards low-level systems and tools. some of the more exciting ones include an operating system kernel, a vulkan-based renderer, a relational database, an implementation of http/2, and an implementation of raft.


i am currently a software engineer at AWS working on S3. previously i worked on Elastic Container registry (ECR).

before AWS, i worked at, EdApp and NewtonX, two small startups where i helped build a mobile learning management system (LMS) and B2B market research platform respectively.
