Hi I'm Eric

I'm a husband, father, engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time husband and father of three children. I grew up in a small town in central Utah. In 1999, after earning a degree in mechanical engineering, I got my first job with a large defense contractor and moved out to the San Francisco Bay area. A few years later, I met my beatuiful and funny wife and a little time after getting married, we started our family.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up as a Mormon and my family heritage extends back to the early Mormon pioneers who left their homes in Illinois to settle in the Utah Territory. Being a Mormon and growing up in Utah was very much a cultural as opposed to a religious experience. It wasn't until I left home to serve as a full-time missionary and later during college that I really began to discover for myself what it means to believe in Jesus Christ and live His gospel. Sometimes that isn't a very easy or popular thing to do, especially as societies become more conflicted and trends of moral relativity emerge as the new norm. I remain a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that Jesus Christ is real, that he died for all of God's children and that this is His only true church brought back to the earth today.

How I live my faith

 I love the word of God. I love how it makes me feel. I love how it motivates me to be a better husband, father, friend and neighbor. I'm not a scriptorian nor am I absolutely perfect in my thoughts and actions, but my faith in Christ inspires me to be better every day. I enjoy serving others because I think that's what Jesus wants all of us to do and it just feels good. I try to share these good things that I've learned with others so that they can draw closer to our Heavely Father and His Son.
