matt_cropMy name is Matt Johnson. This is my personal site. Like the cobbler’s children, it’ll probably be the last to get new shoes, but I finally have gotten around to moving over to WordPress after about 8 years on Drupal 6.

I live in sunny Brooklyn, New York. I grew up in Portland, Maine and have done various stints in Connecticut and California before making my way here.

I co-founded Alley Interactive, which is a company that makes very large content-driven websites for organizations that need them. I’m Alley’s CTO. By trade, I’m a web developer, but I now spend more of my time helping our clients think through their strategy and project organization, and helping our developers work and grow.

I don’t have a ton of spare time, but when I do, the things I like to use it for include sleeping, riding my bike, watching my cat do funny things, getting better at reading Hebrew, and looking at the ocean. And maybe hanging out with friends, or something.

I’ve been making websites professionally off and on since I was about 15 (and now I do it full time). For a while, I was pretty sure I wanted become an astrophysicist, but it didn’t really work out.

I no longer keep a current resume, but if you want to find out analogous details about me, my LinkedIn profile has most of it.

If you’re interested in working with Alley Interactive on your next project, head on over here and send us an RFP and we’ll talk.
