Hi I'm Eric

I'm a dad, an international business-man, a Ute, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fun loving family man. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 5 years now, and we have a 2 year old son who never stops moving. I graduated from the University of Utah, have an MBA from Thunderbird and now manage Latin America for a medical device company. I love to travel, play just about any sport and spend time with family with friends. I am also a connoisseur of fine pepperoni pizza.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it has given my life perspective and purpose. I feel I know the meaning of my existence on the earth, and what happens after my earthly life ends. I know I can have an eternal family. I can live in the world, but have a refuge from the ever increasing evils in the world. I believe in divine revelation and in being guided by a living prophet. I believe in the peace and guidance of the holy scriptures, and in having a personal relationship with my Father in Heaven through prayer. Most of all, I'm a Mormon because I know it is the path for me to return to live with my Father in Heaven with those I love. Plus, it gives me a place to play basketball weekly.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith daily. We try to read scriptures daily, pray as a family and do what it takes to keep the spirit of the Lord in our house. I don't drink or smoke, and try to be a good example to my family and those around me. I am an honest employee and a good friend. I attend weekly church meetings on Sundays with my family, and participate in church activities throughout the month. When called upon, I serve in the church. I have been a missionary in Brazil, taught a class of 8 yr old kids, taken care of finances for my local ward and visit assigned families once a month to ensure they have everything they need.
