About Us

Matt & Kat

Hi, we’re (the people in the photo to the right) Matt & Kat Brown, two kiwis, currently living in London. We met in high school and dated for 5 years before getting married in 2004, immediately after we both graduated from Waikato University where Kat completed a Bachelor of Social Sciences majoring in Psychology while Matt occupied himself by gaining a Bachelor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences with First Class Honours. We’re both Christians who believe that the key to life is having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

We moved to Ireland 5 years ago to experience life on the other side of the world and take advantage of all the interesting places that are nearby to travel to. The choice of Dublin as our European base was made when Matt was offered a job working for Google Ireland as a Linux/Unix System Administrator. Now, we’ve followed Google to London and we’re enjoying the many things a big city has to offer.

Kat is a web designer, artist, baker and generally artsy person. She keeps a blog of her latest creations called, Sweets n’ Stitches as well as developing an online recipe organiser called Om Nom Recipes.

Matt is active in the global Open Source Software community as a Debian Developer and a contributor to many other projects. If you’re interested in that sort of technical stuff, then you can find more info at www.mattb.net.nz.

That’s it for now, if you’re in/around London (or even Europe) and think we sound like friendly people who you’d like to get to know then feel free to drop us a line, you never know when we might be able to match up our schedules and have a drink together.
