Testimonials

Matt is extraordinarily broad and facile in the technologies that ISP and telecom service providers depend on, to the point of being encyclopedic. He deftly relates the specifics of particular technologies to their architectural and business impact and rationale. And he eats the dogfood; he is a prolific experimenter. Highly recommended.
Tom Lookabaugh
Head of System Sciences at Viasat Inc.
Matt is thorough and organised in his work and planning. He is technically very capable and has an excellent capacity to complete work.
Johan van Coller,
Innovator
On behalf of S3 Group, I have been dealing with Matt over the past 18 months. Matt has been a pleasure to work with, he combines a strong technical background with detailed domain knowledge and sound business awareness.
