Sensor Station is a digital studio rooted in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. We are a two-partner team with a collective foundation in formal design study. We enjoy exploring the fringes of computing and existence while living in union with nature. This site reflects our self-driven interests and explorations, but we also offer commercial services.

Matt's father, an engineer, introduced him to logic, reason, and physics at a young age. Learning the principles of good design made him understand how and why to invoke those disciplines for a higher purpose. He’s a self-taught software engineer with a degree in graphic design. He’s worked as a developer for startups, ad agencies, and gaming platforms developing highly custom software solutions and interactive 3D graphics. Today his passions lie in permacomputing, resourceful low-impact design, and intentional living.
Ruth’s interest in web development began at a young age, tinkering and learning in the prime days of Funky Chickens.
