Hey! My name's Scott Mathson, I'm a maker. A web guy. Optimizer (SEO). Designer & Developer. Doer. Entrepreneur.

A musician, songwriter, and audio engineer. Woodworker, small business owner—a maker!

I've been working in the digital/tech industry for quite a few years now, focusing on optimizing, designing, developing, managing, and marketing projects on the web.

Like many others, I first started publishing to the web with WordPress. That was back in 2007 and though technologies, tools, frameworks, and processes evolve, some things remain the same.

I've had a unique journey, experiencing and pursuing a lot already - I love it! I'm a creative-technical person, who has always strives towards becoming the best that I can be, at any given thing.

I happily call Missoula, MT home with my wife and our pets (furry children). This is my personal website and blog, a collection of personal musings, guitar lessons, and my digital journaling. Thanks for visiting!

Make things.

Check out what I'm up to right now.


This website is intentionally built minimally, with the focus of usability and speed across multiple devices.

  • Hand-coded by yours truly, in Atom text editor, using an Atom theme I also developed: Crispy Realization syntax theme
  • Front-end CSS using my customized version of Tahcyons framework
  • Hosted on GitHub - CDN, DNS, & SSL managed through CloudFlare
  • Blogging via Jekyll (with a few, added Ruby gems)
  • Light, flexible, and optimized - a static website, with some sprinkles of JavaScript, kept intentionally minimal

My side project and podcast:

Makerviews by Scott Mathson exists to share, inspire, and give access to a wide variety of makers and their chosen crafts.

Rooted in a deep love and appreciation of handmade, quality goods, I'm setting out to partner and collaborate with artisans and craftspeople, highlighting these makers through in-depth articles.

Check out Makerviews, my latest project!

Cheers!
