Hi I'm Dave

I'm a premed student, a wannabe triathlete, and I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning. The more I learn about the human body and the beautiful complexities of it's physiology and anatomy, the more I am in awe of God's ultimate creation. I hope to become a physician. In my spare time, I love discovering and listening to new music. I like to play the guitar and sing, but I unfortunately don't play as much as I used to. I played in a pretty good funk band in high school and early college, but I think they only let me in because they needed someone to play the one-note rhythm guitar parts. I could handle that. I also love exercise and pushing my body to its physical limits. I like old man sports like swimming, biking, tennis, racquetball, and running. I have been married to my beautiful wife for just over a year and a half. I love spending time with her. She is studying art, and is just a busy as I am. We balance each other out very well.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon mainly for one simple reason: I feel happy when I live what the church teaches. Throughout my life I have had many experiences where I feel the love of God very strongly, both for me and the people I care about. I feel that love most strongly when I am worshiping Him or serving His children. That love brings me a purer joy than anything else in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving God's children. I feel happiest when I am serving others, and that has led me to serve my community through volunteer service. I served a Spanish-speaking mission for the Mormon church, during which time I learned in Spanish and gained a great love for the Hispanic people. Because I also hope to become a doctor, I have spent time during the las two years volunteering as a Spanish-speaking medical interpreter at a local hospital. I believe that the best way we can show our love to God is by loving His children.
