Matt at DEM Matt at DEM

Matt Makins

Matt is a co-founder of DEM and creates the code that makes the DEM products work. Unlike most IT bods who are hidden in basements, he is encouraged to email our lovely clients, so you may have encountered him in a request for campaign content, or money.

His main hobby is beer, not just the consumption of, but also the brewing of and subsequently his garage is starting to resemble a set from Breaking Bad. When he's not chasing hoses around the brewery he can be found chasing his daughter Erin.
