Hi I'm Matt

I'm a research analyst working in San Francisco, but my full time jobs are husband and father. I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my wonderful wife Nicki for a little over six years now. We have a five year old son who really keeps us on our toes, and a two year old girl who pretty much runs the show. My kids are a handful, but I love them like crazy. I also work as a commercial real estate research analyst in San Francisco. It is tough to balance all of my responsibilities, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I don't have much free time, but every second I get I like to spend with my little family. Being a husband and father is so much more fun than I ever could have imagined.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no way I can pin down one specific reason why I am a Mormon. I think if I was forced to, I would have to say that being a Mormon gives me more hope than any other alternative out there. There is a lot of confusion in the world right now, and to me this church just makes the most sense. I know that may seem strange to those unfamiliar with our beliefs. Honestly though, after a lifetime of living by the principles taught in this faith, I can say without reservation that they really do bring happiness. Ultimately though, I am here because of the many witnesses I have received from the Holy Ghost. I have prayed on multiple occasions to know whether or not this church is true, and time and again the reassurance has come. On such occasions, I have never heard a voice, or seen a vision, but the truth was undeniable.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by example. I hardly ever have to preach to my friends and co-workers, but they all know what I believe. I have tried hard to make talking about the gospel a regular part of all my conversations. Most people know it just comes with the territory. Hopefully my example will inspire others to be a little better as well. I invited anyone who is curious about the specifics of what I believe to explore the principles taught on this website. Or better yet, ask me in person! These principles have brought joy to my life and to millions of others.
