Hi I'm Rich

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I suffered from Ollier's Disease as a child (tumors in the growth plates of my right leg), but 10 surgeries and 5 inches later, my legs are the same length. I lived in Argentina for 2 years, Utah for 4 years, and Virginia for 3 years, but I then returned to the valley of the sun to practice law. I’m married to a wonderful woman and we have three boys. I love to coach my boys’ athletic teams, snow ski, wakeboard, and watch college football.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel that I have come to know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through the trials and tribulations in my own life. I have received a personal witness that Jesus Christ lives and loves us. My faith in Jesus Christ brings great comfort and joy to my life, as I know we can be forgiven of our sins through His atonement and return to live with Him. He is our Redeemer. The comfort that comes from knowing that families can be together forever has helped me immensely throughout my life, especially following the loss of loved ones.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Christ's teachings on a daily basis. I don't always succeed, but I strive everyday to be a better husband, father, neighbor, and friend.
