Hi I'm Trey

I am an artist, I am a musician, I'm a Traceur, I consider myself from both California and Utah, and I'm a Mormon!(:

About Me

My family is beyond unconventional, but because of this I am the person I am today and I wouldn't change anything because of that. I am eight years older than my little bro, so getting along can be difficult at times. I've got a bit of ADHD and Depression, but I wouldn't change that either. I am proud of who I am and excited to grow even more! I have always been artistic, musical, and a bit different than others. I love to think outside of the box, and I have a fascination with all the sciences of the world and history. Physics is definitely one of the most interesting things to me though. The way the universe works is just amazing to me, and figuring out its many secrets is one of my passions! I play bass, and I've been in a few bands as well. We've mostly done covers but one band in particular had a blast writing original songs. I am also an artist and plan on going into video game art and design right after my mission. Drawing is another one of my favorite things and I always try to improve and come up with original ideas. If you're looking for an old fashioned man, well I'm your guy, because the old fashioned gentleman/manly man is pretty much what I strive to be, in my own way of course. I also love cartoons, for many reasons. I am a very right brained and creative person, and have always tried to see things from many different perspectives. This helps me to be open to new ideas and views, and allows me to increase my knowledge on pretty much everything!

Why I am a Mormon

Some could say that I have had quite an eventful life. If I wrote everything down, it'd be quite an autobiography, so I'll just give the short version. I experienced death young in life, and it relentlessly hit my family again and again for half of my current life. I learned how valuable and vulnerable life really is. I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, went inactive for three years, and have since returned. Upon returning I just took religion for granted, I didn't really know what it was or what it meant to people, and just decided to live as a good person. I don't know what happened but after many many activities with the youth of our ward, and after all of the great examples that came from the church to help me through my life. I slowly but gradually gained a small testimony. I knew there had to be something else to this life. I always sort of knew that there was a Heaven and Hell, and a God and Satan, but I didn't realize that there was a plan set out for us, and how much our Father in Heaven really loves us. As I learned more and more, I became more and more curious. Why would God make a plan for us? Why does God care about me? Does he really know me personally? The more I learned, the less I knew I realized. Even though I didn't know much, I did learn that there is a lot more to this life than just breathing and surviving. So much had happened in my short life that it just didn't make sense any other way. Why else would I be here but to learn how to live, and how to be ME. God put me down here for a reason, he put all of us here. Not just that but we chose to follow him and his plan in the life before this. So why should I not follow him in this life? I know that he knows me and I know that he lives. I know that this is the true church, and that I am to be a part of it, and help teach his word. I know that he loves me, and wants me to reach my full potential, and that this life is the best place to do it.

How I live my faith

I love doing service for others in our community, and doing so without anyone knowing is, in my opinion, the best and most fun way to do it. My dad and I home teach in our own unconventional way, but we make sure that the families we teach know that we are here for them, and will gladly help in any way possible. I am literally starting my mission right now, so I will be in the Oklahoma Tulsa mission for the next two years. My mission is made up of pretty much all of Missouri, a part of Arkansas, a sliver of Kansas, and of course, a chunk of Oklahoma.
