How Artec 3D is supporting Ukraine

Senior Researcher and Editor

Matthew McMillion


As Senior Researcher and Editor at Artec 3D, Matthew McMillion writes about cutting-edge 3D scanning solutions and the brilliant people using them to change the world, scan after scan. Originally from Silicon Valley, Matthew’s experience in the tech industry began in a California software company in the early 1990s. Since then, he’s worked with thousands of partners and clients around the world, in companies and organizations of all sizes and spheres, from agriculture to zoology.

For the first decade of his career, Matthew built a foundation in software & hardware sales, business development, and training, before transitioning over to writing, editing, and teaching, where he’s been ever since.

In addition to being a published author, voice actor, and teacher of creative writing, Matthew is a voracious reader, and long ago lost track of the exact number of books across his shelves.

Creativity exists more in the searching than in the finding. — Stephen Nachmanovitch
