Christy Matte is a die-hard techie who enjoys video games, surfing the web, and any gadget she can get her hands on. Christy has two Minecraft-obsessed kids, a software engineer husband, and a crazy cat who thinks she's a dog.
Christy has a passion for informal education environments, children, and lifelong learning. Since her early days of programming on an Apple IIe, she has taught computer classes to both adults and children on 3 continents. A self-described computer generalist, Christy has done programming, networking, and tech support on both Macs and PCs. Even so, you're more likely to find her tinkering with creative software or playing a video game than mucking about with hardware and code. She has been online since before the inception of the World Wide Web and operates her own domain which hosts several websites and blogs. She spends far too much time online.
Christy holds a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She also has a Master's Degree in Technology in Education from Lesley University. She is an active lifelong learner.
As the mother of two busy kids, I know how nerve-wracking it can be to stay on top of all of your kids'apps and websites, manage home tech and online communication, and still get homework done and dinner on the table. Technology should make your life easier. I'm here to help you find the best family tech tools, as well as age-appropriate, safe, and educational software, apps, and websites. I'll even help you tackle issues of Internet safety and cyberbullying.
