Hello, I'm Matt.

I am a software engineer from Brazil. My deal is building fast, beautiful and high-quality web apps, but I have also worked on mobile and desktop apps (it was pretty fun!). Whenever possible, I work with Open Source Software (OSS). You can check out my OSS projects below, as well as whatever I've been rambling about on my blog.

  • Front-End Web Developer
  • Open Sourcerer
  • Bullet List Enthusiast
I am quite good at a few things:
  • Vue
  • Angular
  • Ionic
  • Electron
  • SCSS/Sass
  • Jekyll
  • TypeScript
  • UI Design
  • Web Components
  • .NET
