Matthew Potash Senior PPC Analyst

Get To Know Matthew

What was your first job?

My first job was with Leslie’s Swimming Pool Supplies. I started as summer help working retail but quickly learned how to work with chemicals, repairs of motors and robotics, and how to test/adjust water.

What is your favorite movie or TV show?

Scrubs. I think I’ve watched the entire show 4 times already. It has the perfect blend of comedic and dramatic moments.

What is your earliest computing or Internet memory?

In 1998 when I was only 4 years old I started playing StarCraft on my parents computer, praying that no one was on the phone line so that I could actually finish a match.

Who inspires you to be successful?

My grandfather who immigrated to Clifton all the way from Spain. When he arrived in the U.S. he only had a 2nd grade education and yet somehow managed to find employment at 2 different companies. After years of saving and working both jobs, he was able to retire in his early 60’s and lived comfortably for nearly 20 years, visiting his hometown in Spain during the summer. Needless to say hard work and dedication runs in the family, I’ve heard all his stories since I was a child and hope to become as successful as he was.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a 12 year old black lab named Midnight and a 6 year old cat named Phantom (Phanny for short).

If you could have any job, what would it be?

A commentator or analyst for the NFL on a major network, specifically doing Fantasy Football stuff.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Mojocar, Spain. This is where my grandparents have a house, it’s less than a block from the beach, its 70-100 degrees year round, and the food is unbelievable. It’s ideal for me.

What is the most played song on your music playlist or what song describes your life? (elaborate)

Dance Gavin Dance’s “Uneasy Hearts Weight The Most”. It has a really groovy guitar and the vocals are great. The first time I heard the song I was instantly hooked and the band quickly became my favorite.

If you were a fictional character, who would you be?

The Doctor from Doctor Who. I’ve been watching the show for years and it would be amazing to travel through space and time. I have a tendency to ramble on and be slightly erratic much like the Doctor.

What is the most exotic place you have ever visited?

During the winter break of my senior year of college, three of my closest friends and I took what we called our “European vacation”. We started in London for three days, took a train to Liverpool and stayed with some friends for three more days, flew to Brussels in Belgium for a week with day trips to Amsterdam and Bruges. Amsterdam, Brussels, and Bruges are all tied for most exotic in my mind, each having their own amazing history and tons of stuff to see/do
