Hi I'm Ryan

I am a sports enthusiast. I am a father of four. I investigate financial crimes. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my dream girl and we have three handsome, but wild, boys and one sweet innocent girl I love to play any sport or game that there is. Having nine brothers in my family I learned how to be competitive very quickly. I met my wife in college but did not start dating her until I graduated and moved away. I soon realized that I could not live without her, so she agreed to marry me. We have lived in Idaho, Arizona, Texas and now in Oregon. My profession in banking keeps us on our toes. I currently investigate financial crimes.

Why I am a Mormon

This life is about the connections you have, as we are all children of our Father in Heaven. Those connections, whether as family or friends, are built on trust and righteous values. In my experiences as a Mormon I have seen that the teachings and beliefs, when followed, will bring joy and spiritual happiness that cannot be obtained elsewhere. The spiritual answers and feeling I receive to life's obstacles keep me on this path. I know I am a child of God and one day will return to live with Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in constant prayer and faith. Life brings challenges that can only be overcome through the guidance from the Lord. Daily scripture reading brings the knowledge and peace that is needed to achieve my goals. My faith is increased when I see my children make righteous choices and to witness the joy that is brought in their lives. As a church member I teach the youth and pray that a piece of my faith with help them strengthen and build their foundation on the Lord.
