From the beginning of personal computing Matthew Frederick has been focused on how people experience its empowering integration of art and engineering. On the right-brain he’s been successful in print, web, and interactive media graphic design, and from the left-brain, both low- and high-level programming and database design and development. Where those come together with human users, Matthew has worked at the forefront of user experience and interactivity design, beginning with early CD-ROM "multimedia" through the lifetime of the web, the heyday of PDAs and pre-iPhone smartphones, to today's cutting-edge phones and tablets.

After working with hundreds of clients, from small startups to Fortune 100 companies, he has also become proficient at transforming a project’s requirements into efficiently buildable technical specifications while translating its implementation challenges and options into a easily-understood concepts for those less technically-minded. His experience includes working solo and in small teams, as well as leading a hundred consultants, designers, developers, and managers in building multi-phase, multi-million dollar projects.

comment What is the correct pronunciation of the word “route”?
Living in many places in the US, and dealing with networking equipment in all of them, I've always, always heard rowter (rhymes with "shouter") for the networking equipment. If I said "rooter" they'd wonder what I was talking about and if the toilet was stopped up.

comment Is there a word or expression for a small crush on someone?
I know you're not looking for "crush", so I'm not adding an answer, but I hear "bit of a crush" and "a little crush" quite often.

Based on your edit, it's the first use in my answer. "Since Jim left, nobody cares about the project."

comment How to say “Go ahead, I will follow you later” in other ways?
@MattЭллен Fascinating difference, as here in the US "I'll catch you up" generally has the "I will later give you the information you missed", while "I'll catch up with you" means "you go ahead and I'll soon join you".

comment Is the idiom “in order” in order here?
The second version needs a subject, like reason or explanation, e.g. "If you feel the reason for your deletion proposal isn't clear enough, please provide one."

comment <something> and <something> is enough or are enough?
Seems to me that the subject is the email and the reply, not just the reply.
