Hi I'm Jim

I'm a digital filmmaker and photographer, a new media/ emerging technology expert, an Irish-American. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am also a husband, a father, a son, and a brother. My best friend in the world is my wife, and she has been my everything since we first met over 9 years ago. I have five children whom I cherish and live for. Above all, I love our Savior, Jesus Christ, and strive to allow His teachings to guide and inform my life. I am far from perfect but have seen in my own life that living the truths that Jesus Christ taught brings happiness. My passion is digital media and I am a digital filmmaker and photographer. When I am not behind a camera I am probably on a computer exploring new media and new ways to allow people to connect and communicate.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because the Church teaches me how to follow the Savior, Jesus Christ. I have a strong belief that He is our Redeemer, and that we should each strive for a strong personal relationship with Him. It is not always easy for me, because as I come to know the Savior, he shows me my flaws and weaknesses. Basically shows me how I need to improve. But as I work on those weaknesses, I find that I am able to progress and become a kinder, more loving person a little bit at a time. And that's how I think the Savior would want me to be.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ went about serving others. His entire life was spent in blessing the lives of others and lifting others up. I live my faith by following Jesus Christ and the example of love and service that He set for all of us. Whether that means helping someone in need, performing a kind act for someone, serving in my Church by teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to others, or by simply obeying our Heavenly Father's commandments, I have learned that I can show my faith everyday by following the example set by Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, Mormons believe that we are all God's children and should love and serve one another. We read in the scriptures about the example of Jesus Christ and how he blessed all people, both the believer and nonbeliever. If we are following Christ, we will love, serve, and try to help all people regardless of our differences. This is one of my favorite teachings. Show more Show less
