Matt began directing, designing and building Web sites and multimedia applications in the mid-90s for top tier design/development firms in Minneapolis, working with a wide range of clients
including household brand names, Fortune 500 companies and small dot com startups. It seemed natural to match his passion for guitars (particularly the Fender Telecaster) with his inclination for technology.
