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

I've been heads down and focused for a number of years now in the web world, focusing on managing, marketing, designing, developing, and optimizing websites.

I first started publishing on the web, with WordPress, in 2007. Technologies, tools, frameworks, and processes evolve, yet 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 strived 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 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
  • Hosted on GitHub, thanks guys - CDN, DNS, & SSL managed through CloudFlare
  • Blogging via Jekyll (with a few, added Ruby gems) + Alex linter
  • Light, flexible, and optimized - a static website, extended with some JavaScript, kept intentionally minimal
