Hi I'm Tim

I help design the biggest microprocessors in the world. I enjoy volleyball, music, movies, and ballroom dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a computer engineer helping to design some of the largest and most robust microprocessors in the world. I'm a dad with four young children. My wife and I both come from large families. I enjoy volleyball, racquet sports, board games, movies, music, bike riding, ballroom dance, and computers. I built and maintain a home linux server running mythtv.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been mormon for many generations. I like being a mormon because I'm a logical person and the teachings make sense. That's important to me as an engineer, to be able to combine faith with logical and rational thinking. I love how the teachings of the mormon church give me practical advice on how to live a happy and fulfilling life. I take comfort in knowing I have a loving Heavenly Father who guides and blesses my family beyond what we're capable of accomplishing on our own.

How I live my faith

My faith helps me to love and serve others, especially my own family. As an engineer my natural tendency is to be a problem solver, so I take heart in the counsel from our church leader, Thomas S. Monson: "Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved". I have served as the president of various church organizations which has given me the opportunity to love, serve, and reach out to those I preside over. I've worked as a youth leader in the scouting program to help boys become men of character and integrity. I serve as a home teacher, which is a personal minister to several families in our congregation. I volunteer several times a year building homes for Habitat For Humanity. I strive to work hard and with integrity in my career and to be honest in my associations with others. Most importantly, I work hard at being a family man in loving my family, spending time with them (both quality and quantity, such as weekly date nights with my wife), and teaching my children good values.
