Hi I'm Curtis

I am a husband and father. I am a sports enthusiast. I studied accounting and work as an auditor. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in Utah meant playing soccer in the snow – sweat shirts and pants underneath the jersey and shorts. While I moved away from the snow many years ago, the love of the sport followed with me, to the warmer weather of Arizona. And here in Arizona I have been ever since. I have made many friends, graduated from college, married my wife, became a father, and participated in many other personal and family achievements. Not sure where the next chapter of our live is going to take us, but I look forward to the challenges, fun, and experiences that lie ahead.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. My father served a mission. And growing up in the Church, I prepared myself to do the same. However, I was going to have to obtain a personal testimony of the very gospel principles I would be asked to share with others. I can still remember the day when I asked our Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true and if I should serve a mission. The answer was clear, unmistakable, and powerful. That moment continues to serve as the foundation of why I am a member of the Church. That foundation continues to be strengthened through personal and family experiences, through a study of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and through continual prayer.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed to work in many capacities as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have worked with a handful of youth in the Scouting program. I have worked in administrative/secretary roles. And I am currently working with the men of the congregation. While this gives me the opportunity to oversee the spiritual and temporal needs of these men, it also expands to their families and other families of the Ward and community. We visit these families and teach them gospel principles in their home. We visit and administer to the sick and afflicted. We serve those around us. We seek to become more like our Savior Jesus Christ.
