Hi I'm Cameron

I'm passionate about using technology to improve people's lives. I love music theory and well-written textbooks. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I research at the MIT Media Lab in Affective Computing and Biomechatronics. We love technology and often discuss ways to apply new technologies in ways that would be a blessing in people's lives. Ever since I returned home from serving a two-year mission, where I invited people to increase their faith in Christ, I have wanted to help people find success and happiness in life, whether it be through complex means like new technologies or through time-tested principles like faith and prayer. I also love to get outside and go running, mountain biking, rock climbing, and searching for other adventures. One of the things I find fascinating and beautiful about life is that there is always more to learn - from your environment, from those that surround you, from well-written books, from experience, and from the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about six or seven years old, I finished reading the Book of Mormon for the first time. It could not have been any clearer to me, from my personal study of the book alone, that it was of God. When I was eight years old, I was baptized a member of the Church. I have never demanded a spiritual witness that the gospel has been restored on the earth today, but I have prayed for a confirmation of what I have learned to be true. Anyone will find that when they have the faith to believe, act, and change, that they will feel a peace that will assure them that they are doing what they are supposed to, and life will begin to make sense. I know that the things that I have learned at church are true because of the consistent spiritual confirmations that I have received as I have acted with faith.

How I live my faith

The scriptures teach us that we are to search the words of the Lord, pray for guidance, and go and get to work. I have found that praying for guidance and direction and then getting off your knees and getting to work is a basic formula of faith. When I get stuck on a difficult engineering problem, I seek the Lord's help, and sometimes I take a break to read the scriptures. I have found that this pattern has been effective in finding solutions to not only engineering problems, but also to all parts of my life.
