Hi I'm Adam

I'm a father, son, brother, husband. A flyfisherman. A beginner surfer. A Working stiff. A meditation practitioner. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am happily married with 3 girls and one on the way. Today I live in Silicon Valley CA. I've lived in Spain, Mexico and Switzerland. I'm an all-around technology business development ninja. I've been part of two start-ups and hope to run my own taco truck someday. I love people, all kinds of people. I love snow-skiing although I don't live so close to snow now. I embrace the 'great unknown', love adventure and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I have walked the road less traveled and the gospel of Jesus Christ is my compass. I'm so grateful every day for the clear understanding I have of God's plan—where we came from, what our purpose is on Earth, and where we go after this mortal life. I didn't always follow the spiritual path of Jesus Christ. I had to learn for myself even though I grew up Mormon, served a two-year voluntary mission, married in the faith. I stopped practicing the Mormon path/faith for a time. I wandered for awhile, turning Atheist for a time and then studying and practicing Buddhism. I jokingly say that Buddhism brought me back to mormonism. I was then reconverted and continue to be converted after a series of amazing events where I was able to see the hand of the Lord in my life. I believe that Mormonism contains the fullness of the restored gospel/good news of Jesus Christ. I love helping others along the path now that I've been there and back. I'm grateful that Christ atonement is intimate and infinite. Through my own experience, scripture study, prayer and mediation my testimony of the gospel has become rock solid.

How I live my faith

The way I learn in life and through my faith, is by experience. I've made mistakes, I'm making mistakes and will make mistakes in the future. I hope to learn from each of them. I try to live mindfully and in harmony with all people from all walks of life, knowing that we are all on the same journey. I believe that agency, that is, our ability to make choices and let others make their own, is God's greatest gift next to His son, Jesus Christ. I am grateful for both gifts and live by continually thinking about what they both mean.
