Hi I'm Vince

I'm an entrepreneur and executive of online media companies. I'm a father and husband. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married - 16 years and counting! My wife and I have three sons and one daughter. We value our family more than words can describe. I earned a degree in Trombone Performance but later fell in love with entrepreneurship and digital media. I earned an MBA and started several digital media companies backed by a variety of venture capital firms. I enjoy playing the piano and trombone. I enjoy running and recently completed my very first marathon. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young teenager, one of my part time jobs was to play the trombone at a variety of churches on Sunday. I was not particularly religious but did try to pay attention to what a pastor was preaching while I was visiting that church. I did not grow up in a religious environment but I was naturally thoughtful and sensitive to wanting to understand if my life had some greater purpose. I had a group of wonderful friends that were Mormon. As I associated with them, I learned somewhat of the tenets of their faith but was much more impressed by their commitment to living a moral standard that was clearly above the norm. They were not perfect but their faith was sincere. When I graduated from high school and was on my own, I felt distinctly the need to focus my life and sensed that I needed to reach towards goals that I knew I could not achieve without the guidance of God. I called a local LDS bishop only because I knew that one of my high school friend's father had that role and I really respected him. This bishop kindly listened to me explain my search for faith and suggested that I meet with a pair of LDS missionaries to begin study of the gospel. Soon after, I found myself immersed in reading the Book of Mormon. What power and strength that gave me as I felt I was being reunited with a long lost friend, even the Savior Jesus Christ. As I prayed to know if the teachings in the Book of Mormon were true, the answer came freely and with conviction. The answer also quickly transformed into an invitation to action - to do as the disciples of old and to "leave my nets" and follow Him. This meant to strive to live a life of integrity from that time forward and magnify the talents and opportunities I had been given for good. I have strived to do so ever since and have continually been blessed with an increased faith and testimony of the Savior, the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, and the fact that our Heavenly Father knows us and wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

Since becoming a Mormon when I was 18 years old, I have served in formal capacities at church as well as strived to serve my friends and neighbors around me. It was thrilling for me to serve a two year full time mission in the land of my ancestry, Korea. I have a diverse range of responsibilities at church such as scout leader, to playing the organ, and serving as a bishop of a congregation. I enjoy visiting fellow members in their homes and developing lasting friendships bonded by faith. I enjoy sharing my faith and friendship with members of other faiths. I admit that I exert the most energy in living my faith within the walls of my own home. I strive to create an environment, alongside my wife, where faith can thrive and blossom within me and my family.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Mormon services are wonderful and the same wherever you are in the world. Anyone is welcome to attend. You will find friendly faces and a group of people that are working to fellowship one another in building faith and family. Show more Show less
