Matt Pullin

Welcome to :)

I'm Matt Pullin, a software engineer, chess player, and aspiring game programmer from Evanston, IL, USA. Originally this site was used to promote my freelance web design/hosting alias, Second Epoch Solutions. Now it functions as a virtual tree house of sorts. You can hang out here and browse a collection of materials related to my various pursuits.

I'm currently working for REX Electric, an electrical/technology contractor in Chicago. Mostly I program Crestron automation systems and design interfaces for our commercial clients to control custom AV systems such as boardrooms, classrooms, digital signage, etc. I have programmed high-end home automation systems (mostly using AMX) as well. I've been in the industry as a programmer since 2006. Outside of proprietary AV-related languages, I probably write the most in PHP/MySQL and JavaScript. I graduated DePauw University '04, where I majored in Computer Science and Philosophy. I have a traditional C++ programming education, and I have also written in .NET, Java, Lua and Flash ActionScript 2 & 3.

In my spare time I have been developing game apps for mobile devices using a variety of platforms including Android Studio, Corona SDK, Titanium SDK and also developing HTML5 applications.

I'm also the author of a series of instructional chess videos on YouTube. My USCF rating is currently hovering around 2100 and my goal is to acheive National Master status at some point. I continue to play tournaments and produce videos every now and then.
