About Matt

Wow! I’m so excited that you want to know more about me! Ok, so you were just randomly clicking links, but i’ll take that as interest. I was born in NYC, NY (in Peter Cooper Village to be specific), and my family (and me too!) moved to Denver, Colorado in 1976. I received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1989.

My wife Heidi, was the Rabbi at Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Ana, California. She finished 5 years of school, one in Israel and four at the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, so I moved out to Cincinnati in the fall of 1994.

When I got to Ohio, I decided to come and help NKU students and faculty work more easily with their computers, and to see how they can be used in their studies and teaching. I became the Lab Supervisor, and then Webmaster for Northern Kentucky University.

At NKU I was part of the Office of Academic Computing.  They changed it since then so I can’t link to it.  The local news channel did a story on me when the Justice Dept. web page got broken into, and I had it linked here but in 1995 a 15 MB movie file was ‘big’ (ha!), so I had to take it down at the time, and now I can’t find it :(.

On October 12th, 1996, I delivered a Sermon at Beth Abraham Synagogue about Jews and the internet, whick I invite you to read if you are interested in religion online.

In 1997-8, having a web page for your cat was uber-cool, so I made one for Tigger, our kitty , but he’s unfortunately no longer with us.  We also had a dog Max but ‘real life’ was upon us at that time (and kids!) so I never made a web page for him.

I moved to Orange County, CA in 1998, and our family got our Disneyland season passes before we bought our fridge!)

I worked on my own building up my Web Design & Hosting business – lots of stories to tell from the 25 years I operated “It Won’t Byte”.  Now I work as the Webmater for Impact Networking in Anaheim, CA.
