Hi, I'm Matt Ratleph.

I'm a Christian, minimalist, hacker, and creator. I code and make music, and sometimes write and speak. I'm also one of the cofounders of Umberlas, helping artists to connect through service. I hope you enjoy what I've made at least as much as I enjoyed making it. I don't charge anything, and I hold no claim of copyright.
