Matthew Ulasien
I am a technology enthusiast who specializes in helping people and making businesses run better through modern tech, as well as a fan of all things Google. Before starting with Linux Academy, I was a cloud consultant for small businesses, helping them future-proof outdated infrastructure with modern cloud solutions and transform the way they work. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing games (when I actually have free time), and keeping up with modern technology trends.
