Hi I'm David

I am a husband & father. I’m an Electrical Engineer and enjoy the ancient art of beekeeping. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being with my family. I love watching my family mature; from baby to married adult. When the kids come home to visit I cherish every moment. Never to be idle, my recent endeavor is trying to figure out how to be successful with bees; what works, what doesn’t? Experimentation and observation is important for success. Electrical engineering is more than work, it is a passion. My interest in electronics started in middle school. Now, all these years later that same drive and determination continue. There is nothing like curling up to a great technical article and learning something new or studying a mathematical equation to unravel its hidden elegance. Life has so much to think about.

Why I am a Mormon

In its purest and most simple form, my answer is about experiencing truth, real truth. I state my position without guile. Truth isn’t a romantic conclusion handed on a silver platter or an evolution of feeling and thought automatically grown from roots of family ties. Truth requires action and responsibility on my part; to question, study, to live principles then watch the consequences unfold. Through this constantly evolving process I’ve come to better understand myself. Looking back on life I realize that I’m a much better “me” by living how God would have me live than pursuing a life governed by whatever comes my way.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints affords me to take on a different perspective on life, to be part of something with scope and purpose that extends beyond the grave. All this ultimately boils down to being part of, and building a successful family. I participate in my faith. I strive to do my best as a hallmark of personal progress. Participation means learning to do the right thing for the right reason even in light of sacrifice. Service brings out strengths and weaknesses and awakens an internal discovery of myself. The process is to learn, and then act on the principles followed by sharing experience. I see no line drawn, no distinguishing factor between the practice of daily living in a technical world and my religious beliefs. Science is a continuous path of discovery that ultimately leads to Truth.
