Hi I'm Rob

I was raised in Oklahoma. I fly helicopters. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in rural Oklahoma, so I passed the time building dirt jumps and riding BMX. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University and had a blast shredding all the concrete parks in the UT valley, and learning to fly. I earned my Private Pilot License one summer. I also earned a commission from AFROTC and started flying fixed-wing at Laughlin AFB, TX, and when they chance came up to fly helicopters, I jumped on it. I just graduated from SUPT-H at Ft. Rucker, AL and will be flying Twin Hueys in Montana. I can't wait.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the LDS Church simply because it makes me a better man and disciple of Jesus Christ. I strive to emulate our Savior's example through the service opportunities the Church provides. Having grown up in a section of the Bible-belt, there were several churches I attended with friends and by invitation from other acquaintances, but it was really at the Mormon church that I could feel the Spirit and truly learn about how to best live my life and return to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith by being an example of the believers. While its hard at times, especially at work, to not participate in the crude jokes co-workers share, or get laughs by doing inappropriate things, I find that I am best able to represent the Savior in those environments and gain the respect of my peers. They don't swear as much around me, or bring up questionable material. And when someone else does, my friends tell them to watch their mouth or put those things away. And that means a lot. Its definitely a bummer to not be able to go to the bars and hang out with the bros on Friday and Saturday nights and have a good time, but it has kept me out of a lot of trouble that my friends have gotten themselves into.
