Software Engineer
Matthew Downs

Matthew is an engineer at GROUNDFLOOR. Before completing the accelerated learning course for web development at DigitalCrafts here in Atlanta, Matthew spent 14 years living on Sado Island in Japan where he taught ESL for a bit and then became a rice farmer — software engineer farmers are a dime a dozen here in Atlanta. When not hacking away on his computer he keeps himself busy with his 2 greyhounds, 2 cats, and 6 backyard chickens.

Matthew has a degree in Literature from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Literature and Linguistics from North Carolina State.
