Howdy, I’m Matthew Beale, also known as @mixonic. Drop me an email: matt.beale@madhatted.com

I’m an Ember.js Core Team member. At work and at home, I try to build a better web for all of us.

In 2012 Cory Forsyth and I started 201 Created, an Ember.js and JavaScript consulting company. We’ve worked with a diverse list of client including Microsoft Research, Nest (Google), Fastly, Movable Ink, Freshbooks, Twitch (Amazon), and over two dozen others.

Additionally, I’ve been an indepent consultant for To Be, Art.sy, Betaworks, Change Healthcare, and several others.

About a million years ago I went to school for music and recording, then worked in mastering. I still muck around with it. I also wrote for Southeast Performer Magazine.
