Matthew works in Product Marketing in Rackspace’s London office, focussing on the Rackspace Cloud, servers, networking and software. Matt arrived at Rackspace in early 2006, having spent a considerable number of years working for a variety of blue chip companies like IBM, Barclays and Shell, and some startup businesses selling hosted virtual desktops and hosted email. Before finding his home at Rackspace, his favourite job had been working for a company specialising in webcasts from movie premieres, which involved a month or two every year in the South of France at the Cannes Film Festival and other arduous tasks such as interviewing Angelina Jolie.
Outside of work, Matt loves to have quality time with his lovely wife Frances, son Alexander (8) and daughter Amelia (5). He’s very passionate about running and cycling, brewing (and drinking) his own beer and organising charity fundraising events at Rackspace. These include moustache growing every Movember for Prostate Cancer, mountain climbing, cycling across mainland England and other crazy activities. Matt also loves to read, and writes book reviews for the British Fantasy Society in between work and family life.
