Matt Novenstern

Full-Stack Engineer

Matt is, as they say, only human. In other words, he's a carbon-based bipedal life form descended from an ape. Despite his humble origins, he's managed to live (at least a little) on three continents. He studied physics, specifically optics and quantum computing, until he couldn't any longer. He enjoys computer and human languages, and has a soft spot for the ones that others tend to dismiss.
