Matt Milhouse

I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and am a graduate of both West Catholic High School and Grand Valley State University. I have been married for over 15 years. My wife and I have three children: an 11-year-old girl, a 9-year-old boy and a 7-year-old boy, so we're always buying new shoes. I love ArtPrize, exploring West Michigan on my bicycle, and rooting GVSU, Michigan, the Lions and the Tigers. Thanks for listening!
