Hi I'm Sam Petersen

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah. I play the piano, trombone, and bass trombone, and studying to be an engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play the piano, trombone, and bass trombone in various ensembles. I began playing piano when I was six years old, trombone in seventh grade, and I added the bass trombone in tenth grade. I ran with my school's cross country and track teams, mainly in distance events. I am enrolled at Utah State University where I intend to major in mechanical engineering, as well as minor in musical performance. I am currently serving a mission for my church in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church, restored through Joseph Smith. Through prayer and scripture study I have gained a knowledge of the truth of this church, as well as the great Atonement of the Savior.

How I live my faith

At this moment I'm serving a mission based in Novosibirsk, Russia. I hope to spread the gospel throughout the region, and convert others through service, my faith, and my testimony.
