"I worked with Mat for seven years in his previous role at our web development and hosting partner, but have also called upon his expertise in video and audio production. He is proactive, creative and a proficient problem solver, frequently thinking outside the box to come up with the best outcome. He has a broad knowledge of contemporary technologies and is keen to investigate and apply them when he thinks they will be beneficial, and not just for their own sake. Apart from his high level technical skills, Mat is a great communicator and also instills an infectious sense of calm, even when under considerable pressure. On a personal level, if you’re going to work with someone day-in day out, you’d hope they’ll be friendly and cheerful, and Mat is invariably both."
