I am Matthew McKinnon, based in Toronto, Canada. Originally trained as a journalist, I’ve since become a technologist too. In my career I have been/am a digital director, product manager, developer, designer, editorial director/editor, and writer. I am currently a developer/product manager at Indiegraf Media.
