Hi I'm Jacob

I'm an artist with an MBA. I love ideas and designing products. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to draw, make movies with my friends, take photos, write short stories, and design technology products. I'm a convert to the LDS Church, and it's the best decision I've ever made.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by some amazing high school friends. After four years of studying and praying about the Church, I was baptized. It wasn't always easy, and my family wasn't initially understanding, but now, 12 years later, I recognize it as the best decision of my life. Through Jesus Christ's teachings, I have avoided many tragic pitfalls, and have been able to experience happiness I never knew possible.

How I live my faith

A year after joining the LDS Church, I went on a two-year mission to Samoa, where I learned the language and was able to make many deep and meaningful relationships. I've gone back to Samoa a few times, including a month-long trip to capture the oral history of the passing generation and to help establish the digital art lab at the National University of Samoa. Today, I live my faith by trying to be my best possible self, and to follow the example of Jesus Christ.
