Nice to meet you!

My name is Benjamin Matthews, and I live in the wonderful, albeit hot, city of Columbia, SC. I focus in full-stack software development, and love taking a project from idea to completion. I specialize in PHP and the Laravel Framework, but I also have experience working in C# and Go.

I first began programming in PHP in 2011. Since then, I have focused on rounding out my skills to have a solid understand of both back and front end technologies. I started out working with Wordpress, but have worked with several PHP frameworks, my favorite of which is Laravel.

In 2015, I received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. After deciding to not go to law school, I started my career as a full-stack software engineer, and have been in the field full-time for two and a half years.

When I'm not working, I love to get out and get active. I'm an avid runner, and am currently training for my first marathon. I also enjoy going rock climbing (though I prefer bouldering), and playing raquetball. If I'm not out running, you can usually find me in my office reading, playing the piano, or struggling to learn German.

If you haven't already, please feel free to check out the rest of my site! I've put together a portfolio page that shows of some of my latest works. If you happen to be looking for a copy of my résumé, it can be found here.

Thanks for visiting!
