One of Matt’s favorite memories is a family trip Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with wife Susannah and children James, Mady, Hannah & Lincoln. Matt enjoys watching his kids activities, bowling, and hunting. His philosophy is to do what has to be done, when it has to be done, as well as it can be done—and do it that way all of the time. Matt is currently reading Extreme Ownership.
