Founder


Matt is a veteran of storing, transporting and analyzing data at scale, low latency and industry leading sophistication--most recently as CTO of Kensho, the Cambridge based technology and machine learning start up for the finance and intelligence industries valued at $500 million. Matt joined Kensho as a Software Engineer before becoming CTO in December 2014.

Prior to joining Kensho, Matt was Director of Engineering at Tumblr, up until its acquisition by Yahoo; a founding partner of a CT based high frequency trading firm; and Assistant Director of Infrastructure at FactSet.

Matt loves patterns, and delights in finding them in math, art, chess, nature and history. He escapes into long runs with no destination (although he has occasionally aimed himself at marathon finish lines). He lives in Belmont with his awesome wife and two kids.


Matt founded Ohmense on the belief that facts, transparency, empathy and critical thinking are the foundations for a just and successful society.


Matt applies finance-industry caliber technology and expertise in machine learning, data analysis, scaling and security in service of communities--with a particular focus on education, civic efficiency, political accountability and non-profits.
