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.
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.
