About Matt’s Career as Software Engineer:

My career in Software Engineering had an unorthodox beginning.  I didn’t know I wanted to pursue my career in software engineering until the third year in my College.  At the time, I was studying for an Electrical Engineering degree when I unexpectedly found myself an internship opportunity with a small software engineering firm.  After the internship, I realized Software Engineer was a better career option for me.  I eventually graduated with an Electrical Engineering degree and earned a job with a large corporation despite I had never taken a software programming course.  I realized the importance of my internship experience where I learned to write code without understanding the concept of Object Oriented Programming.  Long story short, I stayed with the same company for 17 years and still counting!
