Client Feedback


Hi, I’m Matt Stern.

I like building things online that teach, inspire and sell (in no particular order).

This site is a place to share my creative endeavors and a place to practice the art of creativity itself. It’s for you and for me.

I rant about garden tools and other garden things at The Tool Merchants and help manage the web presence at Naturespiritherbs.

Have an idea?

I’d love to hear what you’re dreaming up. All polite questions are welcome.
