Mat’s jam is creating sound, cohesive frameworks for all inputs into our databases and sounding the alarm if any little bit (or big bit) steps out of place. He’s a confirmed skeptic: “I have trouble accepting absolute truths and have been told I can’t answer simple questions and often go down a rabbit hole of nonsensical possibilities.” That’s the polite version. Down the road, Mat predicts he’ll be either an analyst, CEO, treasure hunter, post-apocalyptic scavenger or stuntman. “The only relatively certain thing I’ll be doing exactly 10 years from now (assuming now = 9am EST) is drinking coffee.” We may therefore infer that the statement “coffee is good” is an absolute truth. For now.
