Hi I'm Mark

I am a husband and father of five, I am a Structural Engineer, I design high-rise buildings and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father of five, three girls and two boys. I am a structural engineer, I design high-rise buildings. I have the best wife in the whole world and I am so thankful for her and how she has helped to shape my life. I spend most of my free time supporting my family’s interests and activities. When I was younger you could always find me on basketball court. Even in the dead of winter I would play in the snow or on ice if there was not an indoor gym available. I particularly enjoy supporting my oldest son in his love of baseball. It was because of him that I have developed an interest for this sport. I like to spend time hiking in the mountains. That is one of the joys of living in the beautiful northwest. I like to fix things. I love to follow college football. I enjoy math and science and enjoy helping others learn these subjects. I may sound like a nerd and you are probably right, but this is how I enjoy life.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up in Utah and as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there came a time in my life where I had to decide, for myself, what I believed. It was through this realization that came from a Power and influence beyond this Earth that I committed my life to the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. God is real, Jesus Christ lives and is the redeemer of the entire world; they both love us and want us to find true Joy in life. It is through their love and this spiritual connection with heaven above that I know we are not alone in this journey through life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to show respect and love to my wife, family, friends and others that I meet. I continually seek for spiritual guidance from a loving Heavenly Father. I try to be honest, hardworking and a good citizen in my community. I try to live my life such that others would recognize that I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I have found that the greatest joy in life comes by giving of one’s self to others in meaningful service.
