Hi I'm Craig

I'm a graphic designer. I'm a father of three. I love Indian food. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Southern California, but I grew up mostly in Utah at the base of the Rocky Mountains. I love to ski. After college I moved to New York City -- yes, quite a contrast to Utah -- and now I live in the San Francisco Bay Area -- also quite a contrast to Utah. I am a graphic designer by trade, but I also love photography. My dream job would be to travel the world, take pictures and make books. I would, of course, have to bring my family, because they are more important to me than anything. I have an amazing wife and three beautiful crazy kids who surprise me and make me laugh every day. And yes, I have one or two pictures of them laying around the house.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I guess you could say that's how I got started down this path. But being born into a church is no guarantee that a person will carry on. I am still a Mormon today because I am continuously amazed at how I can see the hand of God in the little things and the big things in my life. The church really helps me to see that more clearly. It also gives me lots of opportunities to serve other people, and that's when I'm the happiest.

How I live my faith

I do my best to be an example to my family. I'm not perfect by a long shot, but if I can help my family to head in a positive direction and to have faith in Jesus Christ, I know I'm doing okay. We have a special family night every Monday where we sing together, teach the kids a simple lesson, figure out a fun activity, and eat some ice cream -- often with as may toppings as we can find in the kitchen. It's the kids' favorite night of the week. I also try to help other people as much as I can. I try to be a good friend, and to be accepting of others even if they have ideas or beliefs that are different from my own.
