Matt Stone - Senior Interactive Developer
Hi. I'm a talented and enthusiastic Full-Stack Developer with over 10 years experience producing standards-based websites, apps, and supporting infrastructure.
Craft is everything to me. I notice, love, and care for user experience details that are essential for an application to feel just right - most of which aren't communicated in flats: animation, interaction states, responsive layout and performance. Technology has my head, but design and movement have my heart.
