Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a husband, a father of three, a designer, a guitarist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently working as the leader of a design/promotions team at Starbucks global headquarters. I recently celebrated my 21st wedding anniversary with my sweetheart. I use my guitar to blow off steam. And I'm the proud dad of 3 beautiful children.

Why I am a Mormon

I began attending church at the age of 14 under heavy parental influence. The teachings I heard made sense immediately, but I never did anything on my own to solidify my personal feelings about whether I thought the Church was or was not true. At the age of 19 I was expected to serve a mission, but I wasn't sure. I spend many Sundays fasting, many days praying and reading the scriptures, and I received a clear answer that I was in the right place. Shortly after, I received a mission call to the Idaho Boise Mission and it was a wonderful experience. Since then I've been married, had children, solidified my career, and I've continued to be blessed by trying to integrate the teachings of the Church into every aspect of my life.

How I live my faith

I try to maintain a balance in my life by continuing to develop myself in social, mental, physical, and spiritual areas. I read from the Book of Mormon daily, and pray regularly. I do my best to serve others whenever the chance arises. And, most importantly, I try to teach and guide my family in the ways of the Gospel.
