Meet our new Media Specialist Matt Durant! Before joining Trilix, Matt worked in a fast-paced logistics role where he handled budgets and negotiations for his clients. This experience makes him a perfect fit for our media department, where Matt will work with both traditional and digital buying. He graduated from Iowa State University in December 2017, majoring in public relations. Matt was born in Medina, Ohio, and moved to Des Moines at a young age, but his Ohio pride runs deep. He is a huge Ohio State Buckeyes fan to this day.
Get to know more about Matt below!
Favorite meal or restaurant in Des Moines?
I would probably have to say Jethro’s — I could never eat enough of their wings.
If you didn’t work in this industry, what career path would you choose?
I would love to have been a lawyer. I took a law class in college and really enjoyed learning about all the random quirks and rules in law.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I usually hang out with my fiancée and play video games.
Cats or dogs?
Who would you most like to have dinner with, dead or alive?
Harry Truman. I’m a history buff and think he was one of the most interesting presidents we’ve ever had.
You can only watch two movies the rest of your life. What are they?
The Dark Knight and the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
Tell me something no one could guess about you.
I once found a cat in the middle of nowhere Iowa, and it crawled up into the dashboard of the van I was driving and wouldn’t come out. It was an interesting two days to say the least.
What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
Computer parts and building a computer.
Tacos or Pizza?
Pizza, no contest
If Trilix gave out awards, you would be voted “Most Likely To…”
Nerd out. I am a self-proclaimed nerd and will nerd out if you start talking about Star Wars, video games, science or really any other things considered nerdy.
Welcome to Trilix, Matt! We promise to offer you many opportunities to “nerd out” and you may even get a pizza lunch or two here and there.
