Hi I'm Caleb

I'm a gamer, programmer, music enthusiast, and a Mormon.

About Me

Having been raised in a family of geeks, I've grown up loving awesome things. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was my first game. It started a super fun hobby that have helped me bond with many others. Over time I became interested in how games work, which led to a passion for computers and my major in Computer Science. Music is also incredibly important to me. It feels as if it's a universal language that transcends social and language barriers. Everyone can enjoy it. I play the trumpet and love to doodle around on my own synthesizer. I dabble with music production (although I will be the first to admit I'm not very good at it quite yet). I love to see the combination of modern electronic elements combined with traditional musicality. I love Boy Scouts. It helped me realize the beauty of the Earth and provides me with an excuse to spend some time outside. I try to work or volunteer at Boy Scout camp every summer. When I work there I get to act like a nut, have a lot of fun. I love to show scouts it's ok to act like a nut, how have a bit of fun while working, and share what I've gained from scouts with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but have put my beliefs under intense scrutiny. It is difficult to secularly prove the Gospel is true. I believe it is true because of many subtle experiences. Some people receive an instant powerful witness that the church is true, but I never received such. When I prayed, I didn't receive an answer. Instead I thought over a few weeks about how many good experiences I've had with the Gospel. I noticed patterns and the good that has come from the Gospel. With each thought I had a subtle feeling that there was truth or goodness to it. Normally I would discount my own experience. A feeling is usually not a reliable source of information, but this feeling was different. It was subtle, but different.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to live the best I can according to what I know/understand. In church I volunteer time to teach an adult level Sunday school class. Every day I "try a little harder to be a little better." I know I'm not perfect, but I know that Christ has made arrangement to compensate. The Atonement has provided me with opportunity and I try to follow it by being honest and loving. (Again, I'm not perfect ^_^)
