Hi I'm Adam

I'm an attorney and a father of four. I enjoy soccer, surfing, and camping in the pines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've practiced law for 6 years and enjoy working in meaningful development projects. Outside of law, I enjoy a small business working with cars. It feels more like a hobby and it has always been a passion of mine. I'm a father of four children and I love wrestling ("Knuckle Sandwich") with them at night. They are balls of energy and they make a happy and crazy home at the same time. Our family is involved civically in the community, schools, and church. We love our neighbors, friends, and town and are grateful for the safety and happiness they bring. I am a huge baseball fan and Los Angeles Angels fan. Go Halos!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because it brings happiness and meaning to my life. I understand where I came from, why I am here, and how I can return to live with my Heavenly Father again. It teaches me that Jesus Christ is the central figure in this plan, and through Him, I can be forgiven and return to God's presence. I've learned that God loves his children on earth and knows us each individually, like a father to his children. He still communicates with us today through personal revelation and through modern-day prophets, just as in acient times. I know that the Bible and Book of Mormon are the words of God, written by ancient prophets who testified of Christ both in the old word (Bible) and the ancient Americas (Book of Mormon). I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his true church, reestablished again by Jesus Christ in these last days. I know that families can be together for eternity, even after death. That brings the greatest joy and hope to my life.

How I live my faith

I serve my religious community by volunteering as the Executive Secretary of our local ward. I help facilitate in the administrative duties of the church. I've also served as a Boy Scout Leader, primary instructor, and a full time spanish speaking missionary.
