Most recently, Matt led the creation of the second-generation Nest Learning Thermostat, which was released in early October – less than a year after the launch of the first-generation Nest thermostat. Matt also serves on Nest’s board of directors.  

Prior to Nest, Matt was responsible for iPod software development at Apple, from concept to production.
