Hi I'm Matt

I'm sometimes an actor, I'm going to be chef, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California but then moved to Arizona and now have moved back to California. I served a two year mission in North Carolina. In High School I was in Drama class, which I have been in numerous musicals and other plays, and I was also in Choir, I really do enjoy music. I am planning on going to culinary school to become a Chef and one of my biggest dream is to have my own cooking show.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converts to the church in which they taught me the standards of the Gospel. The Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me true happiness in my life, this joy I Have decided to share by serving a full time mission. The teachings of the church have taught me how to live my life and have been the guide on the decisions I have made which I know has helped me to avoid many of the dangerous traps that young people fall into today.

How I live my faith

Just as other young men my age, I served as a missionary in North Carolina in which I spent every day sharing the Gospel. It was a tremendous sacrifice to have left my family for two years to do this but it is something that I loved. It is great to be able to tell those that I meet that Christ's Gospel has been restored to the earth in its fullness and to help those find the true peace that we all seek for. Before my mission I had the opportunity to teach six and seven year old children at church. It was amazing to see the simplicity of the Gospel; it is something that is so simple that even little kids can understand it. I am currently serving as a leader over the Sunday school for the young adults.
