Hi. I'm Matthew Brandt.
I also go by Matty. Or just use my online handle @mattytwoshoes.
I'm a Data Person & Entrepreneur!
Who Am I?
Although it may be a philosophical question, here are the facts.
For over 10 years I have worked with 50+ companies to create tracking concepts, oversee and work on analytics implementations, build reporting stacks and perform analysis of the data for different business stakeholders. The last few years I have been embedded deeper into SaaS and additionally finding ways to operationalise data for different teams. Currently I am seeking a new full-time opportunity after shutting down my startup.
*I cannot take credit for the term itself, which comes from Frederik Werner .
As part of livestreaming (see below), I spend a lot of time building little sideprojects to practice programming as well as solve problems, either for me or for others. You can see what kinds of things I have built here!
Having a B.Sc. in International Hospitality Management doesn't have much to do with analytics - but I approach problems with a service and customer-first mentality, which people I work with appreciate. I believe learning is a lifelong process and therefore my formal education is only a small part of the knowledge and skills I carry.
Cook Eat was the idea of an online peer-to-peer marketplace for homecooked meals. Together with my co-founder Ela we were trying to solve a problem for over 65% of the population: finding something healthy, inexpensive to eat nearby without cooking for yourself. We shut down our startup in October 2022 due to lack of traction.
Since December 2020, I have been livestreaming twice a week on Twitch. With my streams, I hope to learn and educate the global community about data & analytics. As formal education opportunities to enter this field are few and far between (and lagging several years behind the current state), I feel like this is a great opportunity to foster a better understanding of data.
I am proud to be part of a lovely streaming community known as The Claw .
