Hello Casual Browser,

I'm Matt. I'm currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado,
Boulder. Lately, I have been working in the area of software defined
networks. I am funded as the administrator of the CSEL. I like to be a
good citizen of the open source software community; you'll find me
scattered around various git repositories on the Internet.

Other than staring at glowing rectangles, I also like to frolic
outside and climb to the top of things. Living in Colorado suits itself
well to this. I met my wife Kaitlyn in high school. We've been married
since 2011. I am a dog person, but this cat, is better than your cat.
