I’m Matt Gibson, a creative geek from Bristol.
Some people know me as “gothick”, for fairly obscure reasons1. This site is mostly for my relatively random blog, on tech, productivity, music, and other things.
I’m a programmer. I’ve written everything from pension systems to Facebook applications.
Most of my work has been for big UK financial services companies, but recently I’ve turned my hand towards web and mobile app development, and gone freelance. I’ve often partnered with Splendid Things, purveyors of Get Running for iPhone. I created the Android version of Get Running, for example.
I’m also a photographer, a writer and a curator of Unique Sentences, and I’ve been known to do odd musical things. The most recent popular thing I’ve produced is a dance remix of Sandi Toksvig’s pronunciation of “Eyjafjallajökull”, which was aired on Radio 4’s News Quiz.
I blog about my jogging, too, but not here; that’s on my other blog, Matt Gets Running.
1I have never put on white pancake makeup and eyeliner. Maybe a touch of nail varnish every now and again, but that’s as far as it’s gone.
