Hi I'm Bruno.

I am a husband and soon to be father. I work as a scientist in a diagnostics lab. I'm a Mormon convert since 1996.

About Me

I come from a mixed background - Asian, African and Western European. This has been very rewarding growing up as I got to know many different cultures, their traditions and customs. I am also married to a Scandinavian, so we are very excited to see how our children will look like! I work as a scientist and I really enjoy my job as I get the chance of helping people get the right diagnosis and treatment. I also consider myself an entrepreneur as I started my own company after finishing my degree in business. I am a busy bee most days but my most enjoyable time is when I get to sit down and compose my own music on the guitar and computer.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the main reasons why I am Mormon is because I decided to read the Book of Mormon one day. Even before I had finished the book, I knew deep down inside that the book was true and contained the words and teachings of Jesus Christ. Reading the Book of Mormon after a long day at work or tough day always lifts my spirit. I am always surprised by how its teachings are very relevant to me to day and in the process I discover how I can improve as individual, which the another big reason why I am a Mormon. Being an active Mormon and student of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me a framework to be the best I can be as an individual, in my own family and society. It also helps me to look to other people more compassionately and gives me the strength and motivation to "be the change I want to see in the world" as put by Ghandi.

How I live my faith

At a personal level, I try to live according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as much as I can. It can be tough sometimes because it requires letting go of things that are not easy to let go of: pride, selfishness and mixed up priorities in life. Although I am not where I want to be yet, this experience as been very rewarding. In my local Church community, I get to see 3-4 other families once a month and help them with any particular needs that they might have. Mostly, these needs are centred around spiritual issues but I have done the odd gardening and potato picking in the past.
