Hi there, I’m Matt

I’m a product and engineering leader and coach, passionate about building engaging software products, and the teams who build them.

With a background in leading product and engineering at startups, I seek out ways to bring humanity, community, and efficiency into product development. I lead product and engineering on the WooCommerce marketplace at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Jetpack, and Tumblr.
