Hello, I'm Matthew.
I'm a recurring public speaker (English and Indonesian) on the topics of Blockchain, FinTech, and Islamic Finance. I've spoken in front of audiences in the USA, Bahrain, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
I love building to solve problems
Professionally, my background is in software engineering, product management, and user experience. I've done all of these things in different combinations and roles. I've worked for several financial technology ("FinTech") startups, and before that I was in consumer electronics. I attended the Boost incubator program. Have a look at my resume or check out my my LinkedIn profile to learn more about my professional experience.
I love acquiring and applying knowledge
I enjoy learning, in general. A few books I highly recommend are Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman (for anyone) The Lean Startup by Eric Reis (for any entrepreneur) Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins .
I love communicating in many languages. Currently I'm focused on learning Indonesian.
