Hi I'm Russ

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 31 year old father of 3 who just can’t seem to grow up. I love to snowboard, wakeboard, skateboard, play guitar, sing, write songs, watch movies, play with my kids, and go to Disneyland (not necessarily in that order).

Why I am a Mormon

I don’t think I can pin-point one reason why I’m a Mormon. The principles that it teaches has brought me more happiness than anything else in the world. I see friends of mine who are chasing dreams of music, movies, or fame and they don’t have any real direction. They think if they reach their dream they will finally be happy. Although I still enjoy recording and playing music, I have realized that I don’t need to become a famous musician to gain the happiness that I feel everyday while living the gospel. The knowledge that I will be with my wife and children after this life keeps me going when the times get tough.

How I live my faith

I currently team teach a primary class full of rambunctious 5 and 6 year olds with my wife and best friend. We enjoy our time together teaching and also being taught by these bright young spirits. I have worked with the youth in the past and I enjoy serving any way I can.
