My name is Matt Drew, and I'm currently a graduate student at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, NJ. I'll be graduating in May of 2019 with a Master's of Science in Software Engineering.
I'm interested in continually learning and creating - and I'm ready to give it my all. I'm interested in people who are passionate about their work and aren't afraid to show it, and want to be around people that have the same excitedness as I do.
Through extensive experience as an Eagle Scout, Co-Founder and former CTO of a local startup, and Software Project Manager of countless projects, my methods of inclusion, extensive listening, and swift action are tried and true. I am humbled by the people I get to work with every day.
Not many people can say that a product that they have helped invision is in production, and soon to be released. I'm always thinking about the next crazy idea that could be invented, and how to make that idea a reality.
In order to be a great leader, you must be a great team member. I truly stand on the shoulders of giants, and I've only gotten to those opportunities by understand and listening to all of the people I work with.
Writing software isn't easy, and neither is the process of making it. As a 2019 graduate of Monmouth University in Software Engineering Graduate Program, Matt's ready to make any software company's process much more efficient.
Matt travelled to Australia and accidentally changed his life. In has travels, he learned what it meant to be an international citizen, who he was, and what it meant for other people as well. He returned to Monmouth University and spoke at every event he could about his realizations abroad, hoping he could start to inspire others.
Matt has been researching since he was a Freshman at Monmouth University. Projects included "Raspberry Pi Robots," which allowed voice control of RosARIA; "Raspberry Pi Networking," which converts 4 Raspberry Pi's into a mobile server; and "SMaC," a language that Matt helped design to programmatically model state machines.
