I make funky weird websites and cool applications for artists (writers, musicians, mimes, whatever) and people with cool ideas. I can do small and medium projects, and I can work on a budget for folks who have a cool idea but not a lot of cash. You don't need to get shafted by an amateur. We can make your idea a reality.

I especially want to work with artists who need weird websites which stand out against all the cute noise of the suburban internet.

About Me:

My name is Matt Payne. I'm a writer, musician, and programmer. My primary focus is on writing and publishing, but I like making websites and software too. I'll cater to those freaks and artists who want something unique and functional but can't afford the high prices of full-time developers.

About Spiral Machines:

This is the business and technical side of my creative endeavors. It's my publishing company, production company, and the face of my web-development activities.
