Hi I'm Steve

I'm the one on the right and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am first a husband and father of three children, two girls and a boy. After that there are plenty of other things that demand my attention. I am a graduate of the University of Waterloo - a Bachelor of Mathematics with Joint Honors in Applied Math and Computer Science. Logic and analysis are part of my core so I love solving problems and learning new things. This leads to tinkering about the house with electrical, plumbing, framing, finishing, masonry - practically any D.I.Y. project you can imagine. I'll take things apart to figure out how they work or better yet hire professionals to do projects so that I can watch and learn from them. My career in IT has me facilitating electronic business document exchange between companies. I also teach at a local College. My guilty pleasures are graphic novels (comic books) and eating. I love to eat. It hasn't made me a great chef or connoisseur - I'm still really only good at consuming meals. Consuming so many calories all the time requires me to stay active or gain weight. I alternate between the two, but when staying active I participate in all sports - rugby, basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, squash and I love to play golf. My wife has directed several amateur plays in the last decade and I have enjoyed participating with her in both technical roles and even acting, singing and dancing on stage. While the performing arts are my wife's realm, I like to think that I can contribute artistically.

Why I am a Mormon

A colleague once said to me "Steve, you are such an intelligent guy, I don't understand how you can be part of any organized religion." My response is that I have had experiences that make the existence of God undeniable for me. With the assurance that God exists I have the choice of following a path to Him alone or with others. I have been fortunate enough to find plenty of others in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with the same convictions that I have and so many talents, so much virtue and knowledge to bolster and support me as I try to become the best that I can. It would be foolish not to associate with such a group of people.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a matter of understanding who I am and who I want to be. When I consider my relationship with God and that I am His child then I realize that all things become possible for me if I can only reach out to Him and follow Him. The rest is just noise.
