Hi I'm Nathan

I grew up in Utah as the oldest of 8 children. I am a banker. I'm a 5th generation Mormon.

About Me

I am married and the father of four boys. I have a MS in Economics. I am a 33 year banker-the last 10 years as the Chairman and CEO of a bank I founded. I enjoy classical music and reading historical biographies. I have coached soccer for 10 years and I am active in running, snow and water skiing, tennis, golf, and fly fishing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active Mormon family. But it was my reading of the Book of Mormon and the witness of the Holy Ghost that caused me to know that the Book of Mormon was scripture, and like the Bible contained teachings of Jesus and testified of Jesus Christ. I believe that the Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets and was translated by a prophet named Joseph Smith and published in 1830. I believe that there is a modern day prophet today who receives revelation from Jesus Christ who remains the head of the church that he founded during his earthly ministry and which was restored in 1830.

How I live my faith

I have served in my community in the Boy Scouts of America in a troop and as a council member involved in finance and annual food drives. I have served in my church in youth organizations and in organizing neighborhood activities. I also volunteer at the church's Welfare Square in the bakery slicing bread and in the dairy packaging cheese.
