Hi I'm Cameron

I'm a Mormon. I work as a manager for the LDS Church in the Salt Lake City area, and my wife and I have 5 beautiful children.

About Me

I'm a husband, and a father of 5 beautiful children - 4 boys and a girl. Raising them has been the biggest challenge and the most rewarding experience in my life. The easiest part of my life is being married to my beautiful wife. I've made my way through BYU's film school and completed an MBA from the University of Utah. Currently I work as a team manager for the LDS Church in the Digital Media division. My work for the LDS Church came about after years of working in the industry as a video editor and shooter for the Utah Jazz and other similar jobs, plus doing work on the side for my own video business. I started out making films because I love story-telling, and working for the Church I get the unique opportunity to tell many inspiring stories of faith and perseverance. Now that I've moved into working as a manager, I've discovered that supporting my team and working toward a larger vision is every bit as creative and challenging as being a Producer. It helps that I get to work with the best people in the industry. In my younger days, I grew up as an Air Force brat, living in many different places - all the way from California to Italy, and Germany to Boston. Germany was one of my favorite places, but nothing quite compares to the Utah mountains where we live now. My parents raised us on skis, and I still occasionally find the opportunity to ski or snowboard.

Why I am a Mormon

I can remember a time when I was maybe 8 or 9 years old, and I told my Dad "I don't want to go to church today." His response was to challenge me to go that day, but to take a pen and paper and write down everything I didn't like about it and we could talk about it after. We went, and after it was over he asked me to pull out that paper. I looked at him and said "there's nothing on it Dad. I felt so good at church that I couldn't think of anything to write." Later - at age 19, I was asked if I would serve a 2-year full-time mission for the LDS Church. I wasn't sure how to respond, because it was such a large commitment and I didn't want to leave behind my sweetheart at the time. As I pondered it and read the scriptures, I felt prompted to pray. In that prayer such a strong conviction came to me that not only was this the true Church, but that if I would serve the Lord with all of my heart all would be well and I would be happy, regardless of the outcome of my relationship after that 2-year period. Serving as a missionary strengthened my faith and understanding of Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ to such a degree that I know today without a doubt that His promise to me was inspired and this is His church. And I am happy to say that I am married to my sweetheart, who also served as a missionary during that time (albeit on the other side of the world from where I was) and had many great experiences of her own.

How I live my faith

I'm fortunate to live in a community where there are many other members of the Church here in Utah and we all support each other in serving as a ward family. I'm currently serving as the "Elder's Quorum Secretary" and as a Technology Specialist. I basically help our President and his two councilors keep track of our efforts to check in with all of our members in the area and make sure their needs are taken care of. One of our big efforts is to assign and encourage members of our Quorum to conduct monthly visits to one or two families in the area as a companionship. As with all callings in our church, these efforts are completely voluntary.
