Hi I'm Sam Jorgensen

I grew up in several states within the United States. I love working with a/v equipment and playing board games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Every since I was little I liked tinkering with cameras and televisions. The process of a taking a camera and making new, unique images, either traditionally or in avant-garde ways is something that just drives me. Figuring out how to create the best sound with a mixer and connecting all the pieces together is something that just clicks for me. When I was in high school, I worked at a radio station and started my own film and cinematography club. In addition to this, I am a total board game nerd. I love the feel and social time that board games provide. Its something that anyone can do and can be played at any time. I just finished my first year at college and am currently serving an LDS proselyting mission for the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I cannot deny that this Gospel is true. Even still, there are days where everything is hard and sure, I want to give up. But Christ gives me the power to press forward and move on. When I trust in Him, things turn out way better than when I trust in myself, or at the very least I feel more peace in my heart. I know this Church is true and that Christ suffered for us, so that we have joy and be free from our sins, not only now, but for all eternity.

How I live my faith

I have served in several youth callings leading other youth growing up. While at college, I was in charge of making sure all the leaders were coordinating with each other about activities and events while also distributing that information to others so they may also know and participate in these activities. However, these are merely assignments within the Church I have served in. In truth, the way I feel I can live my faith to the best of my ability is to live a life as Christ did. Obviously, I can't be perfect and can't help everyone since I don't know their needs, but everybody loves when someone drops a nice gift at their doorstep or has someone who genuinely tries to reach out and care about them as an individual. These are just some little things that I have found work for me to help others.
