Hi I'm Byran

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended BYU. I am a data analyst and a football fan and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I studied information systems in college and graduated in April of 2012. I work in Utah as a data analyst and love attending the BYU football and basketball games. I play the guitar and Bruce Springsteen is my favorite artist.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was born into the LDS Church and was an active member for my entire life, I came to know that this Church was true through my own experience. I read the Book of Mormon, lived by the principles it set forth and prayed to know if it was indeed scripture. I got an answer that the Book of Mormon is true. Since then, as I have continued to live it, I have continued to see the truth of this Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the blessings that have flowed into my life from it. Its really as simple as that.

How I live my faith

I try to live in such a way so as to weave my faith into everything I do. In addition to trying to increase my knowledge of the "mysteries of God" through prayer and scripture study, I think it is important to benefit those less fortunate. I have tutored in a community center and volunteered at an organization that breaks the cycle of domestic abuse. I try to treat everyone around me with kindness and understanding. It is in this way that I hope to live a better kind of life.
