Hi I'm Robby

I write songs. I'm ambitious. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old and gearing up for school and real life work. I'm love ambition, performing, black and white movies and telling stupid jokes. As far as my interests go, I love alternative, pop punk and indie music. I listen to it, buy it, go to concerts. I also write songs -- simple stuff that gets stuck in peoples' heads -- and have self-produced some recordings that can be found online. I've worked as the copy editor (which is essentially a fancy title for 'typo hunter') and the entertainment beat for a local newspaper, where I also wrote movie reviews. I also interned at my favorite alternative radio station in Salt Lake City. My main worry right now isn't figuring out what I want to do. It's figuring out what I will do, because I want to go everywhere and do everything. I love my family more than anything else in this world.

Why I am a Mormon

As I've grown older and learned more about the Gospel, I have come to know what true happiness is. My music and movie interests offer me great pleasure at times, but I know they cannot offer me the lasting happiness of living righteously and having the guidance of the Holy Ghost in my life. I have a testimony that the Church is true, and that God the Father and Jesus Christ really did appear to Joseph Smith and give him the keys to restore His true church on the earth. I know that God loves me and loves my family, and that he wants the best for me. When Heavenly Father asks us to sacrifice something, it's because he wants to offer us something even greater. He has given me something greater by letting me sacrifice two years to serve this mission.

How I live my faith

I just returned from being a full time representative of the LDS church in Arizona. It was the greatest opportunity I've ever had and I've never been more grateful for any other gift God has given me than to serve him for those years. None of the ticket stubs, thrilling cinematic moments of my past life compare to the infinite feeling of sharing His gospel. I'm always trying to progress as a person. God doesn't expect us to be perfect but he wants us to always be trying and I find that when I do try, I'm happier. Not only that but as I progress spiritually, somehow I progress intellectually and artistically as well. I never drink, smoke or do any narcotics, but am not one to judge someone who does. I pray every morning and night and throughout the day. I do this to keep in touch with the Lord, who I know is really pulling for me to succeed. I also do this to express my gratitude for my blessings and to ask forgiveness for my sins. I keep records because life is golden and while no one is perfect, we all have perfect moments.
