Hi, my name is Matt Rude, I'm a 36 year old, Systems Administrator for a medium sized company in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. I have worked in the Information Technology industry for the last 20 years. During that time I have worked for business sectors as diverse as Public Schools to Auto Parts to Healthcare to Retail Services. These different businesses use technology in different ways, but the root of the technology is always the same.

Outside of computers and technology, I enjoy photography, camping, biking and other outdoor activities. Many of which involves my family's cabin or just playing outside.
