Hi I'm Kevin

I'm from Las Vegas. I loved playing soccer as a kid. I fix eyeballs for a living. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 and a half children (one due in a few months). I am a husband to my wonderful wife; our 10 years anniversary is fast approaching. I am a busy ophthalmologist, diagnosing and surgically correcting various ocular diseases. I served as a missionary in the Budapest Hungary mission, and I still love European food, traditions, and people. I love playing and watching soccer, basketball, and volleyball. I spent a summer in Ghana doing a medical anthropology research project; I love the people there and have hopes to return to serve them. I love to pack up our kids (ok- my wife does most of the packing) and drive to beautiful places and go hiking. I love cereal and especially love to east it late at night before bedtime. I love watching movies; explosions and super-hero story lines are a plus. My oldest daughter is a voracious reader and a ballerina, my next daughter loves gymnastics and eating sugar, my oldest son is pretty sure he is a super hero, and my youngest son loves to try to make his sisters laugh at there dinner table (he's 22 months old). I love life and feel extremely blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I love our Savior, Jesus Christ. I believe that our Heavenly Father lives, that He loves me, and that He is actively engaged in finding ways for me to grow and become more happy. I believe that He sent His son Jesus to earth to save me from my numerous sins, to provide a perfect example of how to live, and to allow Jesus to gain the experience He needed to be able to succor all of us in our various weaknesses, sorrows, and pains. I know that Jesus lives! He is still working tirelessly to help guide us all back to live with Father. Truly, He is preparing mansions for us to live together as eternal families. I have a strong testimony of the Book or Mormon; it truly is God's word and has the amazing ability to guide men and women to believe in Christ and to rejoice in His atonement. I know that the Lord restored His church organization and authority to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. When I learn more about the prophet and his life, I feel closer to the Savior and I feel the Holy Ghost whisper to me over and over that He truly was a prophet of God. I feel the same Spirit witness to me when I hear our modern-day prophets and apostles speak. I believe that in the future I shall have the opportunity to kneel at our Savior's feet and bathe them with my tears of gratitude. I believe He is preparing a place for me to dwell with Him and with my family forever. I love Him and His gospel.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in my church callings, currently as the first counselor in our bishopric. I love to teach and to learn from others. I enjoy working with the youth, who inspire me to be a better father, husband, and friend. I love working with the little ones who have such a wonderful ability to express their joy and thankfulness without any hint of guile.
