  • Get to know Matt 

    My wife Julie (also a Findlay native) and I returned to Findlay from South Bend, Indiana in 2001. We enjoy raising our five children (four girls and one boy) near family and friends in the town we grew up in.  I enjoy cheering for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame on Saturdays in the fall and anytime their basketball team takes the court.  When not chasing or acting as chauffer for our kids, I also enjoy reading biographies and history or playing my guitars.
