Little Beardy Bloke

A creative and chatty little guy who likes designing stuff..

Prior to founding Canny Commerce Matt spent many years designing, building and managing his own eCommerce stores which ranged from his own brand beard oil to the personalised gift market. While he enjoyed wheeling and dealing in the digital world it became clear that the best part for him was the actual design and build of the websites and so Canny Commerce was created.

He still insists on being the main point of contact for all of his clients new and old, and also likes everything on his desk to be at a right-angle.

When he isn’t busy educating people on the most symmetrical way to arrange their desk, he can be found taking part in competitive shin-kicking tournaments throughout the UK.
