I’m Matt Fairley, a web developer based in Toronto. My passion is making and sharing cool things on the internet like these things. I have a degree in popular culture — a real thing you can get from a university. After a 5-year stint at the CBC, I went to HackerYou, where I learned the skills to become a front-end web developer
I love TV, movies, comedy and podcasts. I live in Toronto’s west end with a dog named Clyde and an out-of-control collection of DVDs. I’m also not a robot.
