Hi I'm Aaron

My wife and I have 3 great kids. I love to play sports. I am a sales rep for a medical device company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California and loved sports as a kid. I played 4 sports in high school and was fortunate enough to earn a college track and field scholarship. During my college years I put my schooling and track and field career on hold for 2 years as I went to Guatemala to serve as a missionary. I was able to learn Spanish and teach others about Jesus Christ and serve the people. When I returned home I met my wife and we were married during my senior year of college in San Diego, CA. After I graduated I began working as a salesperson in a few different industries until I found medical sales. We now have 3 great kids and I have been able to coach my oldest son's soccer and T-ball teams. I have also been able to stay active by running, playing racquetball and basketball. Life is BUSY, especially with my wife going back to school to finish her degree. But I wouldn't change a thing. I have been very blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born a member of the LDS church. When I was a teenager I had to decide for myself if I believed what my parents and family believed. When I was 15 years old I was diagnosed with a heart disorder that sidelined me from my active sports life until a simple procedure could be performed to repair the problem. During this time I really studied the scriptures and prayed to know if the things I was learning in church was true. As I studied, pondered, and prayed my faith grew stronger and I learned for myself that these teachings were true. One of my favorite truths taught in the LDS church gives me a knowledge that if I do my best, I can be with my family forever. For me, heaven wouldn't be heaven if I didn't have my beautiful wife and amazing kids with me.

How I live my faith

I get the chance to teach occasionally in a class during our Sunday church services. I also get to help others in the community if they need help moving, raking leaves, and shoveling snow. I have been blessed with good health so I am happy to help whenever anyone needs it.
