My name is Mat Lipe
You might know me as the guy who looms around at WordCamps or mysteriously lurks in online WordPress groups and forums waiting for the perfect moment to jump in and make someone’s project a whole lot easier. You may know me as the guy who vanishes for months at a time to make things work that others have publicly said could not be done. You may have seen my work on the web, modestly authored by ‘Mat Lipe’.
The truth is I live for this stuff. The web gives me a canvas of pure creation that allows me to play super hero and take my imagination to the next level. WordPress is both my hobby and my job. I give back freely to the community out of pure gratitude for all the wonderful developers just like me who believe in collaboration. This beautiful network has allowed me to turn my freelance work into my full time profession.
When I am not programming you will find me seeking out new experiences. I spend a lot of time mountain biking far off the beaten path or scuba diving the deep corners of iron mines. I am always down for a game of disc golf or trying out a new restaurant.
To other developers out there, if you like something you see, let me know. I am happy to throw it up on GitHub as long as it is not client work of course.
