About Me

My name is Matthew A. Schneider. I am a San Antonio, TX based Web developer. In a former life I was an aerospace engineer. That work was easier.

I appreciate the balance that Web sites/applications must strike between form and function. My design decisions are informed by the necessity to provide viewers with the information they need, quickly and clearly. I seek to minimize distractions and embellishments and maximize the organization of business information to support meaning and usability. In this endeavor I count among my mentors: Edward Tufte and Jakob Nielsen. I also owe a debt of gratitude to Lynch and Horton and their “Web Style Guide“.

I have two teenagers who keep my blood pressure up. If not for them I would be fishing. (Just kidding you two… I would be sitting on the beach with a cold one).
