Hi I'm Keith

I'm a husband and father and love my family. I love to cook, hike, and take my kids to the park. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California, attended college in Utah & Indiana, and am now living in Oregon. I help companies streamline analysis & improve visibility into key information to make better decisions. Most weekends you'll find me in the backyard tending the grill. My wife & I recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary, and we have two beautiful daughters.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many people, I have a lot of things happening in my life. Work, family, & personal responsibilities & interests all compete for my time and attention. The things I learn about at church give me additional perspective into what's important, and feelings of peace and comfort when I feel overwhelmed. Prayer, scripture reading, and personal meditation have strengthened my relationship with Jesus Christ and motivate me to stretch myself and become better. I know God lives & that He loves me, and this knowledge inspires me to follow Christ's example as best I can. I'm happiest when I do.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday where I play the organ and sing in the choir - I love how uplifting music can help me feel closer to Jesus Christ. I enjoy the strong friendships I have at church with other local families. I also work closely with our "missionaries" (you know, the guys in white shirts & ties) to introduce our message to others in the community and invite them to worship with us. Christ told his followers, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations" (Matt. 28:19) - I try to do the same thing here where I live.
