Hi I'm Sam

I'm a husband, dad, brother, & believer from USA, now in Asia. I'm a pioneer in my family, work & service. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the luckiest man alive--surrounded by my soul mate and three princess daughters. I am an idealist/businessman, perfectionist-become-disciple. I grew up loving my hometown and nation but took my little crew to Asia for the beginning of my career here. I love tennis, doughnuts, reading books aloud with my wife, Monk TV episodes, good movies, Italian food, Taiwanese breakfast, playing games with my girls, and mango smoothies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am who I am because I am Mormon. Everything that I have--my strong relationships with family and friends, my career drive & skills, etc.--all come because of the fire this faith gives me. And it protects me from the hidden "land-mines" that are now all over our path in this life--pornography, greed, dishonesty, lust, and so on. The Restored Gospel (Mormon Faith) points these out and teaches people how to break loose and then stay free from the enslaving chains that result from them. This freedom is priceless and allows me to focus on what really brings happiness: eternal family relationships, personal betterment, and service to others. There is nothing like this faith in all the world.

How I live my faith

My grandpa once told a newly-wed couple: "In every new congregation you move to throughout your life, the very first Sunday go up to the leaders and say, 'Reporting to duty! How can I help here?'" That is who I am striving to be--a plug-n-play member of the Christ's Church. I have the responsibility in my congregation to lead efforts in sharing the Gospel with our friends. I serve alongside Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, German, Philippine, American, and Swiss brothers and sisters in this joyful work!
