Hi I'm Ryan Purcella

I grew up in Alaska, became an engineer, and helped start a non-profit organization for Russian orphans. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mechanical engineer in the oil and gas industry. My hobbies include web design, programming, and 3D visualization.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ gives you a reason to be positive and hopeful in this life. It allows you to help people in a meaningful way and contribute to the happiness of others.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as an assistant to the president of the Elder's Quorum in our congregation. I help plan activities designed to provide instruction to help men become better fathers to their children, husbands to their wives, and more productive members of their communities.
