Hi, I'm Matthew Chen. I'm a software developer with ~2.5 years of experience. My current focus is primarily on front-end development (React, TypeScript, Next.js), but I am also open to backend and full-stack opportunities.

About Me

After graduating with a B.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, I've since been working in the tech industry as a Software Engineer. During my career so far, I've had the opportunity to work in Front-End Development, Full-Stack development, Cloud Computing, Infrastructure as Code, and Machine Learning.

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling to new places and exploring different cultures (food, architecture, music, etc.) as well as photography and playing the piano. I also enjoying going for walks, exercising, and watching/playing different sports.
