Matthew DeCarlo (Matthew)
TechSpot Staff, 25, from Pennsylvania
With no formal IT background, most of my experience stems from industry-related publications and excessive curiosity. I found TechSpot in early 2008 while hunting for an active tech community and I was instantly hooked. I spend most of my waking hours in front of a PC, but outside the realm of technology and work, I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our dog, playing video games, picking locks, training with kettlebells, and shooting firearms.

While I've spent more hours gaming with a keyboard and mouse than any other input devices, some genres are just too awkward for me to play without a controller. I'm lousy at driving and platforming titles to begin with, but...
