Hi, I'm Matthew!

I'm a thinker, writer, product designer, and design strategist living in San Francisco. I help product teams and entrepreneurs at companies of all sizes, think through their products at all stages of development. I specialize in developing design systems, optimizing features, and looking at how to work with the end-user to create a better product. 

As a product design consultant, I worked at Leade.rs, where along with the co-founders, we built a platform to discover the next generation of great speakers for events like TED, the Global Economic Summit, and Leade.rs events. I also worked at Telmate, where I created a product design team to overhaul all their consumer products and leverage usability research to understand their target audience better.

Prior to San Francisco, I lived in Washington, D.C., where I worked for Blackboard as a conceptional designer for the executive leadership team. And before that, I designed interactive patient interfaces for hospital systems throughout the United States at GetWellNetwork.

Interests

I love to travel and experience new cultures, people, and food. I share many of my adventures in photos and through Twitter. I'm working on the next draft of a travel memoir where I go into greater detail about my travels. It's expected to be published in 2020.

Currently, I'm re-learning Python, developing algorithmic trading strategies, and understanding Machine Learning (ML) and its application for consumer-facing products and services, especially in finance. I've also become proficient at trading derivatives, both futures and equity options.

If you have design and product strategy opportunities or want to talk about travel and finance, send me an email, and we can meet for tea to discuss more. Some of my work and a sample case study can be found in my portfolio, along with my resume.

大家好。 歡迎! 我是孟默修。

我的英文名字是馬修,但是我的中文名字是孟默修(我大學時候的哲學教授,替我取了這個很特别的名字。)。

為什麼這裡有中文?因為我喜歡用中文,這是我的第二語言。中文是廣泛使用的語言;讓我在世界各地都能以中文溝通。

大學畢業後,我去台灣學習中文。我也學習國語,書法,文言文和中國藝術史。我和其他台灣學生一起與一位著名老師學習中國書法。

我要告訴大家一個秘密: 我❤️台灣。這個小國對我的生活影響很大。我想念自己在台灣有的自由—學習,探索,失敗和發現有關世界的新事物。我可以說是在台灣長大的。

我在台灣有很好的朋友和記憶,比起其他在台灣的大多數外國人,我也有不同的經歷。我曾是電影,廣告,廣播和MTV音樂錄影帶及電視演員。

如果您想說中文或想了解更多關於我在台灣的經歷,請發送 電子郵件

再見!
