A brief overview of the life of Matthew (Matt) Trombley.
Who I Am
Hello! My name is Matt Trombley, and thanks for stopping by my website. I am currently working as a Data Scientist at Fidelity Investments in the RTP area of North Carolina. I graduated from NC State University with an M.S. in Analytics after receiving a B.S. in Mathematics from Clemson University. At Clemson, I served as the Vice President of the IPTAY Student Advisory Board (ISAB). This board serves as the liaison between the Clemson student body and IPTAY, Clemson's athletic booster organization. As Vice President, I oversaw the new member application process as well as helped manage the day-to-day activities of the board. The Student Advisory Board supports many sports and student-athletes on campus, as well as runs events to benefit student IPTAY members.
In my spare time, I enjoy:
Working on my Jeep
Video capture, editing, and production
Video games, including Fortnite, Madden, and Call of Duty
Working with broken electronics
Traveling (some of my favorite locations are Hawaii and California)
Besides the above, I enjoy being outdoors and hanging out with the friends I've made in college. Whether it's hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains or playing on intramural sports teams, I thrive off being active. And, you'll always catch me wearing orange on Fridays.
I have always enjoyed being entrepreneurial, whether it was buying broken electronics, fixing, and reselling them or selling my graphics services. In addition, I have always enjoyed creating graphics and videos through the Adobe Creative Suite. After Effects has been my program of choice for years. All of my skills in the Creative Suite have been self-taught. Being able to use these creative tools to turn an idea into a visual product has been a passion of mine. I try to use these skills to produce well-designed data visualizations.
Fun fact: I was in a mini Amazing Race-style competition in Virginia Beach. You can watch the mini-series on it here!
