Hi I'm Bryan!

I'm a Philadelphine Philanthropist.

About Me

I'm working toward becoming an accomplished film director with a penchant for acting in my own productions. I'd also like to become a school teacher. In fact, my life is so full of goals and possibilities right now, I'm not sure where to begin. I want to travel the globe on a dime, and immerse myself in the culture of every place I visit. I'd also like to go through medical school and become the best doctor I can be, so I can turn helping and healing others into a way of life. At the same time, I still want to stay actively engaged in making movies. There are so many possibilities, I don't know how I'll find time for all of them! More than anything, though, I just want to give my future family a stable life that won't leave them feeling confined or restricted... I want my kids to be able to accomplish anything they dream of!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church in 1988, and have remained a member ever since then. It hasn't always been easy, but I can clearly see the positive effect that an upbringing in the gospel has had on me. The best part is the more I learn about God's plan for us and experience the results of Christ's Atonement, the more excited I become about it. Serving as a missionary has let me see the love of Christ and the gospel come alive in others and improve their lives, which has in turn strengthened my own belief in Jesus Christ, in his gospel, in the Book of Mormon, and in Joseph Smith, the first prophet of our times. Being a Mormon is only getting better and better every day!

How I live my faith

As I mentioned earlier, I'm a missionary right now. That means I'm blessed to be one of those people whose lives center on my involvement in the church simply as a matter of course. I get to invite people to come to know Jesus Christ better every day, and I love it!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

We're not required to, but the growth I've been able to see in myself and in others as a direct result of the choice I've made to teach and serve as a missionary has been phenomenal. It has been a great help to me, personally, and I'm glad I took up the challenge. Show more Show less
