Hi I'm Dean

I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I work at a zoo. I have a great wife and a lazy dog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the United States, and appreciate the perspective that comes from being among diverse groups of people. I have a beautiful wife and an incredibly lazy dog. I love animals and have been working in the Zoo industry for about 4 years. I love mountain biking and playing hockey whenever I can.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon gives me constant perspective in my life. No matter how stressful things are day-to-day, I know that there is an eternal purpose to my life. The small things don't really matter. This helps me keep the most important things in my life (family, friends, the way I treat others) as the center of what I do. I also know that the Savior not only has given me the greatest gift in his Atonement, but he's also always there to understand me even in life's most challenging moments. Most importantly, if I am faithful and worthy I know that I will be with my sweetheart forever.

How I live my faith

I seek to put others first in everything I do. I love the joy that come with service, especially serving those that I love the most. I know that if I focus on the people around me, my own life becomes richer and more peaceful. I love teaching, and each Sunday I have the chance to teach the 5 year old class in Church with my wife. It is truly a blessing to teach and be taught by them each week. It brings me peace and happiness.
