About Matthew

I am passionate about people and the organization I work for. I strive to build, “teams within teams.” Continual improvement and focus on leadership is a cornerstone of my management philosophy—I support my people and serve the team. My outlook is positive and I extend it to my daily interactions through motivation and servant leadership. My goal is never perfection. It is a positive trend towards improvement. I have over 20 years of experience in international operations and project management, with primary focus in the energy business sector, achieving superior financial and operational results.

I am ready to start a company and drive it with a solid team. I have a handful of good ideas and 3 really great ones. We currently have a Web Developer/Graphic Design/User Experience Guru but are lean on the HW/Development side. We need someone who is excited about IoT.


However absurd it may seem, I do in all seriousness hereby declare that I am animated mainly by philanthropic motives. I desire to do good to my fellow creatures, even to the Cui bonos. - Oliver Heaviside
