Hi! I'm Matt. My username in most places online is eightbitraptor I've been writing Ruby since 2007, contributing to the language since 2020, and I've been a Ruby core committer since March 2023.

Currently I'm at Shopify in the Ruby Infrastructure team working full time on improving MRI (Matz' Ruby Interpreter - the reference Ruby implementation, also known as CRuby). Scan the QR code to the right for my contact details in MECARD format.

Besides hacking Ruby, I enjoy Anime & Manga, brewing coffee (and sometimes beer), building keyboards, and Photography.

I am not currently listening to any songs by anyone from any album.
