Hi I'm Dave

I am a husband, am a father of 5 daughters and grew up in New Jersey.

About Me

I truly enjoy spending my free time with my family. Together we enjoy bike riding, going to the beach, hiking, playing tennis and soccer and throwing the football around. With the youngest daughter just about a teenager (and with that comes the inevitable itch to be a little more independent from Dad), my wife tells me I need to get some new hobbies - so I am working on it. I have graduate degrees in Economics and Business, and when not spending time with family, I work as a consultant for a national consulting firm developing pricing strategies for our clients.

Why I am a Mormon

I had great parents that were Mormons, and I have been a Mormon my whole life. But there came a point in time in my life when I had to find out for myself whether being Mormon was right for me. Through a desire to know and through prayer and meditation, I came to know that there is a God that loves me and that he wants nothing but the best for us. He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to show us a better way to live, and to ultimately give his life so that we may all return after this life and live with them as well as with our families and friends. I believe that when Jesus Christ was on the earth he established his church and that once again he has placed his church on the earth, and that it is important for me to belong to it

How I live my faith

As with most things in life, we can look to Jesus Christ as an example and a role model on how we should live our lives. The life of Jesus Christ is full of examples on how he went about serving, lifting, inspiring and loving others, despite the many persecutions and challenges placed on him. Although I have always really known the importance of looking out for others, it wasn't until through several recent events - almost an epiphany of sorts - that I gained a deeper understanding of how critical this is. I believe that when my life's journey has come to an end that the measure of how successful I have been in this life will depend on how I have treated others.
