About Me

Matt Cushman with World Series Trophy

Hello and welcome to my site!

My name is Matt Cushman and  am a senior at Drake University. I’m majoring in Marketing with an emphasis in analytics and research at Drake’s College of Business and Public Administration. Previously, I attended the University of Missouri – Colombia for a semester before determining that it wasn’t the correct fit. Due to the unnatural fit for me socially and academically my decision was made early in my college career, rather than later.  As a result, I went back home to study at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois. I earned my associates degree and took extra  time to choose my transfer school. After careful deliberation and thought I chose Drake as my new school and have been very pleased with the decision.

Back Home

I am from Mundelein, a suburb of Chicago and graduated from Mundelein High School in May of 2014. My parents recently moved to their hometown of Elkhorn, Wisconsin to retire. I have one brother Bryan, who works at Kikkoman Soy Sauce in Burlington, Wisconsin. I also have 3 dogs named Winter, Summer, and Junebug. The breeds of the dogs consist of Australian Shepard, Beagle, Rat Terrier, and Cattle Dog. My parents are a foster family for dogs that come in through a foster agency called placing paws. Throughout the years, my parents have continued to care for animals including 10 dogs at one time.

Life in Des Moines

I currently work for the Iowa Cubs as a stadium operations intern. If you are more interested in what that job, or any other job that I have had entails you can find that by clicking my resume tab. My goal is to land a job in sports after graduation and continue my dream of working in sports.

If I’m not in class or working, I enjoy watching sports, watching Netflix, listening to music, playing golf, or hanging with friends or family. I am an avid sports fan specifically in football and basketball.  My favorite team in college football/basketball is the Wisconsin Badgers and my favorite NFL team is the Green Bay Packers. My favorite genre when watching Netflix is mystery/thriller movies and shows and enjoy to listen to rock/alternative music .
