Hi I'm Roman

I grew up in Switzerland. I'm a Civil Engineer planning Tunnels in the UK. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in Switzerland, where I graduated from university as a Civil Engineer. Shortly after my graduation I moved to England to start postgraduate study in Tunnelling. It is very exciting for me to have been able to return to England where I spent two years as a missionary for the Church a few years ago. I am now working for a tunnelling consultancy as a Graduate Tunnel Design Engineer. In this role, I am involved in some of the most significant infrastructure projects in the United Kingdom. I find it very satisfying to work on projects which help to reduce our impact on the environment and which help us to live comfortably. When I have a few quiet hours, I love to read good books. It is very enjoyable to learn about other people's views and experiences and I love the experience of learning new things. Besides reading, music plays a big part in my life. It has a powerful ability to reach my heart and help me feel calm and peaceful. Listening to and watching an accomplished orchestra perform is one of my favourite experiences. I have also been playing the Violin for many years, and I like to be part of an orchestra or to perform together with my Dad who plays the Piano. Spending time with my family in Switzerland every few months is very important to me and I am grateful for the positive influence of my siblings and my parents in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

In the difficulties and challenges of my life so far I have learnt that I can trust Jesus Christ completely. His understanding for my weaknesses and His love give me the strength to be positive about the future and to go forward with confidence. He is my greatest example. Through prayer and the study of the Holy Scriptures, I have come to know Him better. I love to read about His life in the Bible. The Book of Mormon has helped me to better understand the teachings of Christ in the Bible. Living according to the teachings of Christ helps me to be happy, positive and to feel peace. Through prayer, I have received a very personal confirmation that Christ has restored His church through the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

My faith helps me to give my best in everything I do. Having a belief in Jesus Christ and wanting to follow his example, I feel it is important that I share the blessings I have received with others. And so I try to do good to and serve people around me. I have noticed that it is often through small and simple things that we can make someone's day brighter and feel a lot happier ourselves. If I keep my eyes open and listen to people carefully I can recognise ways to help and serve every day.
