Matt Stockton

Hi, I'm Matt. Thanks for stopping by. I'm a Software Engineer in Milwaukee, WI --- originally from Ann Arbor, MI (Go Blue!).

I enjoy writing software, running, reading, watching my favorite sports teams, and learning new things. I'm curious, driven, and willing to focus my skills and efforts on things that are challenging and interesting. I'm continuously trying to figure out how to make my dent in the world --- and to help others do the same.

If you're looking for my iPhone applications, you can find links to them below. Some of my other projects are listed below as well. If you want to get in touch, I'm on twitter and LinkedIn --- or email is fine as well.

My Projects

I like to build things. Here are some of the iPhone apps, Web apps, and other projects I've built or helped to build.
