Hi I'm Eric

I grew up in Utah. I love music, especially participating in choirs and Musicals. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I LOVE music; listening to it, singing it, or playing it. My entire senior year was dedicated to singing with my participation in 5 different concert choirs, performing (singing and dancing) choirs, and musical casts. I also enjoy engineering and am planning on going to college for a degree in Architecture. My father, several close uncles, and 2 of my older brothers have the same Mechanical Engineering mindset, so their influence and passion has been passed to me :) I am a people person! While computers and books are enjoyable, I absolutely love talking to, being with, and serving my friends. I love making new friends that I can joke around with and make laugh. Some people say that my constant attention and lame jokes get a little annoying, but since it makes them happy, they're stuck with it. ;)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a strong LDS family, with 6 older siblings and 3 younger (that's right, 10 kids). Most of my family has served missions ranging from Japan to Brazil, the Philippines to Spain, Latvia to Utah. My entire family is dedicated to this beautiful church, and that is the main reason why I am a Mormon. My favorite part of this wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ is what we call the Plan of Salvation. Through the Plan of Salvation, we are promised that we can be with our friends and families after death and live with them for all eternity if we follow the example that Jesus Christ laid down for us. I can't imagine anything more amazing than the knowledge that I can spend the rest of forever with the people that I love so much on this earth.

How I live my faith

I have participated in several church choirs and performed for, in some cases, thousands of people. I truly believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ and the love that he has for us is best shared by the spirit that music can and does bring. My best friend and I have written and performed several songs about Christ's life and love for us for a few different events (including Christmas concerts for school, LDS sponsored Missionary Preparation camps, weekly LDS meetings, and bi-yearly stake conferences). I recently got a mission call to serve the people of Washington DC, so I plan to do just that: Serve 'em! As I said in my profile, I love people, so serving a mission in the beautiful capital of the USA is one of the best ways that I can really show that love.
