About

Mat PackerMy name is Mathew Packer, my friends call me Mat or Packer. I live on the east coast of Australia in a beautiful city called Newcastle with my wife Cath, my son Travis, and our dog Cherry Bomb, and this is my blog.

I’m a husband, Dad, photographer, blogger, 9-5 worker, golfer, sometimes-handy man, and generally a pretty nice guy.

This blog is a bit of a mashup of various topics. One day I might be writing about the latest software and hardware releases from Apple (I promise I’m not a total fanboy), the next I might be telling you about how terribly I played golf on the weekend, or maybe even about a website project I’m working on, or maybe even what’s for dinner.

I hope that you find this blog informative sometimes, or at least humorous occasionally. I write about the things I’m interested in and am passionate about. All of the products and software I write about are things that I work with regularly, or have at least done some serious testing on. I won’t write random spammy press release stuff, so if you’re from a PR company don’t ask unless you’e sending me a demo unit.

If you like what I’m writing about feel free to comment on the articles (and yes i know some of the articles don’t have comment areas, those are the link blog articles and you should just follow the links and comment on the original post), say hi through my contact page, or yell at me on the twitter.

Have a great day or night where ever you are.
Cheers, Mat
