Hi I'm Lars

I'm a computer scientist, a new father, an amateur musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My wife and I have an enthusiastic toddler. I served a mission to southern Brazil in the mid-90's.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. I continue to attend this church because I see all the time what effect it has on the lives of people who live it.

How I live my faith

Most of the time, "living my faith" equates to service. Whether it's helping a complete stranger moving into an unfamiliar area with no friends that needs help unloading a moving van, or joining in a community beautification project, or even just reading a book to a small child, I feel that the best way to live my faith is to try to do something that helps me forget about my own selfish tendencies.
