Hi I'm David

I'm an engineer, I write songs for fun, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have the world's most interesting job - I work on programming computers so you can talk to them. It's called automatic speech recognition and it's a mix of math, statistics, software, linguistics, and physics. For fun I like to write music and help other people record their songs.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family of engineers and I spend my days working with scientists, so I've been trained to critically examine evidence. When I apply these principles to faith, the existence of God is unmistakable. I see His hand in the world around me, I feel His Spirit in my heart when I pray, and I recognize power in His words when I read the scriptures

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon keeps me busy. I have meetings on Sunday, I join the missionaries to teach lessons Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and I try to read the scriptures and pray regularly. It's not easy, but these things make me happy and help me be a better person.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

I planned to go on a mission since I was a little boy, but I had to wait till I was 19. No, it's not required, but it was the greatest experience of my life. Show more Show less
