CoderBrown.com is the personal website of Matt Brown. I'm a Web Producer on the interactive team for Discovery Agency, the in-house agency at Discovery Communications. My team creates websites and interactives for all of Discovery's networks and business units. Some of our past work includes: the Emmy® award-winning Skywire Live with Nik Wallenda, Nik Wallenda's tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon which was broadcast live on Discovery Channel; the Webby Award winning Whale Wars: Blood and Water, Animal Planet's interactive episode of the story about Japan's Whaling Fleet and the Sea Shepherds activitists who try to stop them; Skyscraper Live with Nik Wallenda, a multilingual website showcasing Nik Wallenda's tightrope walk between two skyscrapers in Chicago that aired live on Discovery Channel; Klondike, Discovery's first scripted mini-series; Sci2.tv, a site from Science Channel with curated science-related YouTube clips and original video content; and Everest Avalanche Tragedy, a site that was originally supposed to carry Joby Ogywn's wingsuit jump from the top of Mount Everest live on Discovery Channel but was quickly converted to cover the tragic avalanche that occurred in the Khumbu Icefall near Base Bamp and claimed the lives of 16 Sherpa. We've also built Discovery's Corporate site and Press Web site.
I specialize in website QA (browser testing), but as a web producer my daily tasks are widely varied and include managing analytics, building electronic press kits and other small-scale websites, processing video and audio used on our sites, serving as the HTML email expert, training users on our CMS systems, and administrative items such as tracking and managing our server costs. I'm also a Web Standards, accessibility and usability advocate.
In my spare time I'm an Apple fan, technology geek, craft beer enthusiast and avid homebrewer. You can follow my homebrewing adventures on Facebook at facebook.com/TalbotKnollBrew (sorry, login is required since the page is age-restricted) and on Twitter @TalbotKnollBrew.
