By the year 1999 met the PHP programming language and over time was developing, fixing and improving management systems like Mambo free, Wordpress and Joomla! the latter being among the large community preferences and quality of developed code.
In the absence of solutions in the field of data migration between versions, in January 2008 created the migration tool called mtwMigrator that migrates data from a Joomla! 1.0 to Joomla! 1.5. This tool was very useful to users and Joomla! and opened the way to the development of jUpgrade with input and support all Joomla! community as well as major developers of Joomla!

Is a founding partner and the lead web designer for AandCmediaConsulting.com. Over the past several years, Matt has developed multiple websites. One of the first websites he designed was for a local soccer club for a community service project in high school. After designing the site, he fell in love with web design and server hosting. This led him to build a server at his house from an older computer. Eventually he brought the server online and hosted a web redirect to provide more open access to various websites. He then continued to develop his skills by building additional and more complex websites that include: CollegeOutlet, HitTheRack and one for his fraternity, Kappa Alpha Order. He also designed several sites for smaller companies. His passion is to take a person’s vision and develop it into a complete website. Matt is currently pursuing computer related courses at JMU to help him further enhance his career in web design. He later partnered with Steven Aquino to form A&C Media Consulting. He is now teaching a 1 credit web design class at JMU. He is also interning at Capital One's technical development program.
