Hi I'm Ricky

I'm a bird watcher. I love computers. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love the outdoors. When ever I can, I like to go hiking or (in the winter) skiing. My random hobby is bird watching. I've seen almost 200 different species of birds. Lots of people are confused by this hobby. I usually explain it to them like playing Pokemon. You got to catch them all (or in my case see them all). I am a computer programmer/physicist/mechanical engineer/all-around-nerd. I got my degree in Physics and am now working on a PhD in mechanical engineering. Between the two, I worked as a computer programmer for Lockheed Martin.

Why I am a Mormon

I've come to notice that the Gospel is not just to help others. It also helps me. When I follow the Savior Jesus Christ, I am happy. The Book of Mormon says "Wickedness never was happiness." (Alma 41:3) and I have found that to be true in my life. Why would I not want to be Mormon? It brings me happiness!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking for ways to help and serve others. The Gospel is a principle of action. Just believing something isn't good enough; you need to show your belief by exercising faith. As the Bible says "faith without works is dead" (James 2:18).
