Welcome to the online home of Matthew Thompson Doxtad.

I am a designer, coder, editor, filmmaker, inventor, idea-man, gamer, astronaut, unicorn-tamer, semi-professional curler, and writer.

I have saved the kingdom of Hyrule countless times, ridden on the backs of the Shai-Hulud, and photographed C-Beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

Check out some of my work below or download a portfolio of samples.
