Hi I'm David

I grew up in Southern California. I'm a builder. I'm a father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a recent college graduate, a new father, and a new hire, I feel that there is a lot about me that I still have yet to learn. I can't begin to explain the excitement and joy I experience each day as I watch my son learn new things and develop new skills. My wife is an amazing woman who is always there for me, always pushing me to be a better person, and the is the most amazing mother our son can have. Growing up in Southern California, the outdoors was my life. From the beach to rock climbing and snowboarding in the mountains to wakeboarding on the lake, I love being active. I played soccer throughout High School and am a big fan of college football.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the motto's firmly embraced by the company I now work for says that "Who we build is as important as what we build." Being a young father and husband, I feel that building my family is an essential part of this life and eternity. I believe that through Jesus Christ we have the incredible opportunity to share our lives with our families forever. This is one of the many reasons families are so central to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I also believe that Jesus Christ truly is the head of this Church and directs us through a living prophet, currently President Monson. As I follow his guidance and the direction provided by the 12 Apostles, I know that I am doing the things that my Father in Heaven and Savior would have me do. I believe we all have potential to be something great in the life and the teachings of the Church not only support that bt encourage us to always be all that we can. As children of God we all have inherited qualities from Him just as we have from our parents. As we develop these qualities and grow closer to our Heavenly Father I believe we can get a glimpse of what we truly can become.

How I live my faith

My wife and I currently have the opportunity to spend time with the Sunbeam's each Sunday. Sunbeam is a name given to the group of children ages 3 and 4. Although they can be a rowdy bunch of kids, I am impressed each Sunday as I witness their unwavering faith in the Savior. There is so much we can learn from an innocent child. After working with children in the church for 2 years now I feel I am only beginning to understand what is meant in the scriptures when we are taught to "become like a child."
