Hi I'm Brian.

I am newlywed. I work in Major League Baseball. I love my family. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a wonderful family of 8 with selfless parents and tight-knit siblings. Every time we are together there is endless laughter and fun, anyone who has been in our home can attest to that. My personal life has changed considerably in the last year! Just last November I married my beautiful and highly talented wife Rachelle. We are very lucky and happy to be together and ambitious about the future. I recently graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s in Finance. Shortly after graduation I was able to receive an offer from the Arizona Diamondbacks to work in their Finance Department. I love sports and spend a lot of time doing things like repelling, playing baseball, basketball, hiking, and doing all manner of physical activities. I also enjoy the world of finance and investing, and understanding the intricacies of the world’s economy. I love to learn and experience life; I couldn’t be more blessed in the life I am living.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel is all about families. I love and cherish my family. I know families can be together forever which brings me tremendous joy knowing those I care for most can be with me through eternity. I have also been extremely privileged to represent the Lord as a Missionary in South Africa and Botswana. Those two years, and those countless relationships, changed my life forever. I have a great love for the people of Africa and always will. I was raised in the Gospel and through prayer I know personally that The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and contains the fullness of the Gospel. I am so grateful to know that our Father in Heaven loves and cares for each of us, and that he has a divine plan structured solely to bring us back into His presence where we will experience a fullness of joy. I feel His love everyday even among the hardships I encounter, because I know He has a plan and my best interest in mind. I cannot imagine a life without the comforts of these basic truths. Truly, my family relationship, missionary experience, and peace are a few of the greatest blessings the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers me.

How I live my faith

I strive to live the principles of the Gospel every day of my life and hope to improve all the time. I enjoy serving and working with the youth of the Church by planning fun and uplifting activities and sharing gospel messages with them weekly. Some of the most memorable moments in my life have come when I have shared the Gospel with others because it is of such value to me. I try to exhibit the standards of the Gospel by how I conduct myself and I always look forward to sharing it to those who are interested. The Church offers so many chances to give service and find niches where you can give to others.
