I build interactive web sites and I teach web-based graphic design and programming at the collegiate level both on-campus in Denver, Colorado and online. Although I teach development using HTML/CSS and Adobe Flash, I focus much of the production work to take into consideration typography, color, navigation, content layout, and overall style. I expanded upon my lecture materials and wrote three textbooks covering these subjects published under Wynn Press. Check out my textbooks by visiting WynnPress.com. Don't worry, my portfolio will still be here when you get back.
As a graphic designer and web developer, I can provide you with any services you require from W3C Compliant CSS web sites to interactive Flash experiences with ActionScript programming & animation. If you are interested in learning how to do all of this, I also offer on-location training sessions or you can pick up one of my textbooks from Wynn Press.
I was recently recognized by Adobe for my contributions to higher education. You can find my profile on Adobe.com by clicking the Education Leader icon:

More Advice Here:
I maintain the blog at Wynn Press in order to reach more students interested in design. Most of my blog articles aim to inspire students who are overwhelmed trying to find the balance between school and life, like my post "Parents in College."
Many of my articles have become an easy reference for myself when teaching. You may be surprised how often my college students contact me by email with their use of poor grammar and spelling where I need the Little Orphan Annie Decoder Ring to decipher them. I've found it easier to initiate a discussion with them about this subject by emailing them a link to my blog article "Importance of Good Grammar" and asking them what they think. I usually get a more positive response from them and a kind apology.
If you ever had to sit in a class and listen to Matthew rant and rave
endlessly about elegant design, efficient programming, engaging typography, or why you shouldn't just randomly pick colors from the color wheel on one of your projects, then you need this shirt.
Wear it as a badge of honor.
Never get caught cheating again in class with the answers written onto the palm of your hand or on the bottom of your shoe! With Matt's fool-proof cheating book, he outline techniques how to store all the answers in your head.
The perfect place that teachers
never think of looking!
