Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon and a nerd. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and work for Google.

About Me

I love tinkering with computers. What started as a hobby has turned into a career. I'm a happily married father of 5. Besides work and school business in my life over the years, I've also been a scout leader, PTA leader, and church sunday teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, but my testimony really came alive when I was a teenager and really started reading the Bible and Book of Mormon in my personal life. I love studying the scriptures to learn of how people anciently reconciled living in the world with the receiving and keeping gospel covenants. I served a 2 year church mission to New Jersey. This also helped strengthen my testimony as I saw how people and families are blessed when they live the commandments.

How I live my faith

I've been a youth leader, Elder's quorum leader, and scout leader. Right now I teach a sunday class for 8-9 year olds. Of course, when you teach children the gospel, you learn more, and their insightful questions and comments also help learn and grow. Like most members of the church, I visit some local families and share a message as a home teacher...and offer to help if they need something (like if someone is sick, or they are moving). And, sometimes, I bring cupcakes -- that's always the message people like the most.
