"I could change the world

... but they won't give me

the source code."




Matt is a “full-stack” computer engineer and an expert in circuit design, communication protocols and the Internet of Things. Matt’s business experience was developed in small and large enterprises in NZ and SE Asia.


At age thirteen he was using a soldering iron to make a joy-stick for his Sinclair ZX81 micro-computer. In the later years, his talent, experience and skills have made him an internationally recognised leader in bringing “IoT” to the conservation estate. Matt likes to call himself an IoT architect.


Matt is a dedicated environmentalist and wants to apply his formidable technical skills to resolve his biggest challenge: New Zealand pest problem.
