Matthew Saunders

Friday Keynote: Matthew Saunders

Matthew's foray into the Web began in 1995 with Le Groupe de la Place Royale, an Ottawa-based dance company pushing artistic boundaries. This sparked a lifelong passion for cutting-edge technologies. He honed his organizational skills with a Non-Profit administration certification from the University of Ottawa, followed by an MFA in Technology and Organizational Management at Virginia Tech.

His extensive experience managing web application projects fueled his transition to the Drupal community in 2007. He's a master of various project management methodologies, a sought-after speaker at Drupal events (including a keynote at Drupalcamp Austin), and a key contributor to Drupalcon Denver's organizing committee. Since its humble beginnings with just 14 attendees, Matthew has been instrumental in planning and running Drupalcamp Colorado.

Beyond technology, Matthew champions neurodiversity awareness, both as a speaker and advocate. Currently, he leverages his analytical expertise as a Business Analyst at Pfizer.
