Hi I'm Allan

I was born in Rochester, NY. I'm a father of 4 kids. I love boating, baseball, SciFi and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I joined the Church when I was a freshman in college. I love taking my son to baseball games and coaching my daughter's soccer team. I love to cook and bbq for my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teenager my best friends were members of the church. They invited me to play softball and to attend dances. I was impressed by the closeness of all of the kids. They always had activities and spent time together. They included anyone that wanted to attend. When I was with them I always felt good about myself. When I went away to college I missed that feeling. I started going to church and found that wonderful feeling again. After almost a year of attending church I decided to get baptized.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve others since joining the church. My best experiences have been working with the youth. They are fun, energetic and inspiring to me. I love that scouting is an integral part of working with the young men in the church. One of my favorite experiences was talking a group of 13 year olds on a sailing trip. I loved seeing the joy on their faces when they caught two sharks.
