About Me

Hello! My name is Matthew Danics and I am a student at Western University pursing a dual degree in Computer Science and Business Administration. I am an easy going person who loves to find solutions through discussion and teamwork.

I have experience with full stack development as well as mobile development with Flutter and React Native. Currently I am a director on the startup portfolio of the largest technology club on campus.

When I'm not studying or working on projects, you'll find me kiteboarding. I have a passion for kiteboarding and love the thrill of landing a new trick that I've been trying countless times. I have travelled to 11 different countries in the past few years seeking of the best kiteboarding locations that the world has to offer.
