Headshot image of Matt Donaldson, a front-end developer.

Hello!

I'm Matt, a Toronto based front-end developer with a background as a manager an chef that now uses my skills to plate beautiful applications. I also clearly like bad jokes. I combine my past experience with strong technical skills to bring a unique perspective and skill set to the table.

I believe in staying evergreen , the concept of always striving to learn and develop further...to blossom into a better developer. Sorry, there's that habit for bad jokes. I'd better work on developing my sense of humour.

I also have a passion for cooking and food. I'll try any dish once, and more often than not a few more times after that. When I'm not cooking or coding I spend my time reading, camping, and exploring this big wonderful city in all its (sometimes) glory.

This app is fully responsive and accessible and allows users to find the recipe they're in the mood for or view the most popular recipes by default. I built this because I have a passion for food and cooking so I can quickly find recipes.
