Hi I'm Tony

I make art with Spray-Paint, I'm a Musician, I speak Spanish, I'm the son of a fallen soldier, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in San Diego, California to wonderful parents. My father was in the Marine Corps and later served in the Army. He was killed in Iraq a few years ago. I've moved somewhere around 15 times in my short lifetime, and a lot of who I am has come from the different cultures I've been exposed to. I paint in a collective of artists and have been fortunate enough to have my art displayed in several galleries. I love art and music, it's my life. Self expression is a beautiful thing, whether it be through the tip of a spray can, or out of the mouth of a singer, art allows us the means to express our inner-most feelings. I also enjoy snowboarding and having clean fun with good company.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've sincerely investigated what this church claims to have; a living prophet with the same Priesthood that Christ gave to His Apostles, who reveals to us the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I've studied it and then asked my Heavenly Father in prayer if it was true. The feelings and answers I've recieved are undeniable. Because of what these modern day prophets have revealed to us from God, I know that families can be together forever through God's Plan of Happiness. I know that through that plan I will be with my father again, and that he will always be my dad. You can call it wishful thinking, but I know God intends for us to be happy forever with our families. We're not here to simply live and to die, but to learn how to become something in preparation for incredible blessings after this life.

How I live my faith

I have served with the youth in our church, which has allowed me the huge blessing of working with some incredible kids. I have also served as a teacher in the church. Recently I served as the president of my local congregation's men's organization. I loved the opportunity to serve. I also served as a full-time missionary, setting my life apart from the world for two years. I served in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission, and I loved it. I've never been closer to the Savior than I have as I've served and helped others understand how loved they are by their Heavenly Father. I love helping others come closer to their Savior Jesus Christ.
