Hi I'm Rob

I'm an entrepreneur, a husband, and father to two daughters and a son, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an entrepreneur, business manager, and a dad. I grew up in the suburbs of New York City, and received a law degree from Columbia and a business degree from Harvard, so I have expensive wallpaper. I've worked in industries ranging from technology to travel and tourism, mostly in Southern California and Hawaii. I have also lived in Nigeria and Japan, and enjoy fitness, travel, and movies. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three delightful children (pictured above).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints provides the doctrines and ordinances for salvation of all mankind, whether in this life or the next. The teachings of this church, particularly revelations through Joseph Smith, provide a window to Christ. The scriptures and modern instructions from prophets called of God provide guidelines for successful living. Mormon doctine is consistent with prophetic teachings through the centuries, and outlines a comprehensive plan for true happiness, despite the challenges and trials of life. I've read the scriptures, including the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and believe they are the teachings of a living God, and truly testify of the divinity and mission of Jesus Christ. I have felt the confirming witness of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and that the ordinances and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are true.

How I live my faith

Mormons teach, serve, and try to help others in the church and community. On a daily basis, we pray alone and in our families, and read scriptures, including the Bible and Book of Mormon. We attend sacred temples to renew covenants made with God, and to perform ordinances for ancestors. We attend church to learn about the Savior and provide service to one another. In all things, we try to follow Christ - sometimes we fall short, but we believe in His grace, mercy, and the opportunity for continuous improvement, and so we keep trying.
