Bradley Matson

Iā€™m an experienced and passionate Entrepreneur, Technology Executive and Web Developer with years of experience building companies and developing for mobile and the web. My career started as a real estate investor immediately after undergrad. After the market crash of 2008, I pivoted to work in Tech Startups, first with a company in Tucson, AZ and then continuing with companies in Michigan, Montreal, QC and Miami, FL. My roles have ranged from CoFounder, CEO, CTO, Advisor, Managing Partner, Head of Business Development, Community Organizer and Freelance Web Developer. My breadth of experience and skills make me well suited for several positions and projects. Please review my résumé and portfolio and feel free to contact me regarding any opportunities.
