Matthew_2015_headshot I’m a Christian, husband, father, and engineer. I’m thankful for my amazing wife who inspires, supports, challenges, and encourages me. I am blessed to be the father of four children who bring me joy! I'm a software engineer, currently developing a video game for the NES and the PC. I'm the author of How Computers Really Work. I previously worked at Microsoft in various engineering roles, from debugging the Windows kernel, to developing automated fixes, to leading a team of engineers who built diagnostic tools and services. I enjoy playing and arranging music. I'm a fan of hiking, retro video games, reading, Star Wars, and drinking tea.
