What up! Matthew Orndoff's the name.
I'm interested in plants 🌿 guitar, history, psychology, group dynamics, and system-think in general.
I like to program and tinker with things, because it teaches you how to think. I used to think that quote from Steve Jobs along those lines was kind of cheesy, but I've found it's actually fairly accurate. Everything is embedded in some sort of system, if you think about it enough.
I came up in the hills of Southern Oregon.
Graduated with an AA at Rogue Community College.
In 2014, I hit the road for Portland, OR where I'm currently pursuing a B.Sc. in Computer Science at PSU part-time. I always loved computers growing up, and had a general obsessiveness surrounding technology. A couple years ago I was fortunate enough to score a web developer internship at Mentor Graphics, where I learned a lot about how software teams actually get things done in the real world.
I’m a fairly inquisitive person, I like to examine issues from all perspectives. It helps keeps my ego in check from thinking that I've got it all figured out.
I enjoy listening to debates on politics, religion, science, etc. Really debates on anything– I find them mind-expanding.
I’m fairly active on Twitter (it’s kind of a problem). If you follow the right people on social media though, it can become a great medium for learning.
If you feel like reaching out, you'll have a better chance of getting ahold of me there.
Peace to the planet 🌎
