Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I Graduated from University of Utah in Business Finance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 4 years and have a 2 year old daughter. My daughter loves to read books and play with puzzles. I have been in the banking industry for the last eight years. I consider myself an outgoing person. I like to play basketball, ultimate frisbee, and softball. My favorite summertime activity is to go boating and all the activities that go along with it. I learned Portuguese while serving my mission in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel so grateful everyday to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In my youth, I did not attend church regularly. It took a short time to realize that I was actually happier when I attend church; learning about Jesus Christ and following His teachings. I have been blessed with a loving family that enjoys serving others and spending time together. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, that he suffered the sins of all so that through faith, repentance, baptism, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost we can return to live with him again. I am grateful for the gift of free agency; that through our own choices we can learn for ourselves what will bring us true happiness. My choices in life have lead me to follow the example of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My wife and I have been teaching children from the ages of 4-8 years old over the past few years. It is so fun to get to know each of them and to be a part of their lives. We make sure to bring over homemade cookies or cupcakes to them on their birthdays.
