Hi I'm Luke

I'm an engineer. I'm a skateboarder. I'm a photographer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend as much time as I can with my growing family. I am married to my high-school sweetheart and we have three imaginitive kids. I skateboard as often as I can (which turns out to be roughly twice a week) and spend all the rest of my free-time shooting pictures, editing pictures or studying photography online. I studied mechanical engineering in college and have had a fascinating technical career that has so far spanned two companies. I love my job as a field representative for my current company.

Why I am a Mormon

A strong part of my testimony is rooted in the Book of Mormon. The more that I have studied it, the more real the people in the book have become. There are so many applicable teachings that I have applied to myself. The teachings in the book are good and true and make me like myself more. Obedience to the principles taught in the LDS church have made me happier... sometimes in ways that I wouldn't have predicted. Principles like abstinence from addictive substances, tithing, volunteering at sometimes inconvenient times, etc. have all contributed to a fulfilling, happy life.

How I live my faith

I participate in church by teaching a primary class for six-year-olds. For the previous two years I volunteered as an early-morning seminary teacher for local high-school kids. The more important part of living my faith, however, is how I act while away from church. In my interactions with my kids, in my interactions with my work associates, with friends, wherever... I live the way that I know is right.
