I am very fortunate to have been given the opportunities that I’ve had, personally and professionally. Growing up in a small town in Idaho and now living in Southern California, I've met some pretty amazing people who’ve introduced me to some pretty cool stuff. I live my life by a quote from one of the greatest religious leaders ever, Gordon B. Hinckley: :"Life is to be enjoyed, not endured."
I AM... AN ENTHUSIAST
"What is there to do this weekend?" are words that have never escaped my mouth. I’m always up for doing anything outdoors. That includes you have plans to work out, dirt bike, surf, golf, off road, play a pick-up game of football, basketball, baseball or go camping, hunting, fishing, rafting, or pretty much anything else outdoors, don't forget to invite me.
I AM... AN ENTREPRENEUR
I was simply not made to be an hourly or salaried employee. Just as I was starting college, I was introduced to the world of sales; and I was hooked. No one controlled my income or my time, but me. I love the energy industry that I chose. I go to sleep each night anxiously awaiting the next day.
I AM... A HUSBAND AND FATHER
A million people have coined the phrase, "Luckiest man alive," but I'm pretty sure I win the contest. I am obsessed with my girls, but if I said I wasn't praying for a boy, I'd be lying. Luckily, my prayers were answered and I welcomed my new buddy, Bryson, in January. The first thing he did on his way out was ask "Two stroke or four stroke, Dad?" I answered: "Both, of course." Then we fist bumped. We're going to be best friends.
I AM... AN ATHLETE
Anyone who played sports with me throughout my childhood and high school days knows that I wasn’t the greatest athlete. However, athletics is still a very important part of my life. A day that begins at the gym is always a good day. A day that ends in the hills is a great day! I'd rather be participating, in sports, but being a fan is pretty fun too.
I AM... A MAN OF FAITH
Any good quality that I possess is a direct result of my religious upbringing. Growing up in the Mormon Church, I learned values that have shaped me. I had the opportunity to devote two years of my life to the complete service of others. I learned that you cannot truly know yourself until you become selfless. That experience taught me more in two years than I would've learned in 10 years otherwise. At the age of 21, my goals and my peers’ goals were completely different because of my service.
