Hunter grew up in the middle of nowhere, Upstate New York, with dialup internet long after the rest of the world moved onto faster things. After moving to Troy and experiencing “big city living” he skipped college and started to learn how to build startups and how to program. Now, he loves building software that solves huge problems. When not telling computers what to do he can be found hiking up mountains during the summer or sliding down them with a snowboard strapped to his feet during the winter.
Matt is the trendiest member of the Ant Hill team, which makes him perfect for analyzing data. He has climbed more mountains than Hunter, enjoys playing trumpet and soccer, and is fascinated by military and economic history.
