Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Tempe, AZ and love vintage Vespa scooters, model railroading, filmmaking, and swing dancing. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I started making my own movies when I was a teenager and this lead me to a degree in Film and Television Broadcasting. I am currently a freelance videographer and I have been all over the USA and the world on various filming projects. Some of my hobbies are vintage Vespa scooters, model railroading, train watching, traveling, and hockey. I am a father of four and I love spending time with my family. Often my hobbies are shared with my family and I create many family home movies that have gone viral online.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church with ancestors on my fathers side dating back to the original pioneers. My mother was 19 when she joined the church and is the only member in her family. I was taught the gospel all my life but as a teenager I really became converted. I felt the spirit as I read the book of mormon and I knew it was true. I obeyed the commandments and lived my faith as best as I could and I saw the blessings of my faith. I surrounded myself with friends that uplifting me and shared my beliefs and I then was able to serve a full time mission in Nova Scotia and share my beliefs with others. I met my wife at a swing dance and we were able to marry in the Temple and seal our love for eternity. We now have 4 kids and I try to do the best I can to live the commandments. I do not always choose the right but I know that my savior loves me and has atoned for my sins and If I repent I can be saved. I know this gospel is true and is will bring eternal happiness to me if I can but live it.

How I live my faith

I am currently active in my ward and I am teaching a class once a month. This gives me an opportunity to prepare myself with study and prayer to follow the spirit to say what my father in heaven would have me say. I also visit with other families in my ward to see how they are doing. I read scriptures with them. Pray for them. We have dinner with them and in general we look after each other. I try to volunteer each month for many service projects that occur in my area. I have created promotional videos for many non-profit charities and service organizations.
