Matt was with Valve Software from 2001 to 2006. He was the development manager for the Steam team. Steam’s a massive (1 million peak simultaneous users, 2.5 million unique users per month) online gaming service that allows users to buy and update games, as well as providing a host of other services such as in-game instant messaging and cheat prevention. Before working on Steam, he worked as a contractor developing systems for preventing cheating and piracy in our online games. He created the original Valve Anti-Cheat system (VAC).
He worked at Microsoft from 1988 to 2000 where he was a Software Design Engineer, Development lead, and Development manager. After leaving Microsoft, he briefly experimented with being retired. He wasn’t very good at it.
Matt studied physics at the University of Chicago from 1984 to 1988. Much of his time at UC was spent in the astronomy department, where he wrote software for the Local InterStellar Medium project, as well as doing some research of his own on 21 cm hydrogen emissions.
