Hi I'm Paul

I have spent 35 years doing International Business in the Medical Industry and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Following my mission in Japan, i returned home, attended college and continued my education by obtaining a Masters Degree in International Management. Since then, I have spent the last 35 years in my professional career, traveling around the world doing business in more than 50 countries. It has been an interesting and very rewarding experience in getting to work with and know people for different countries, cultures and backgrounds. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and am grateful for the friendships and associations with so many good people in many far away places. At home i am a husband, a father of four children who are now grown and married, and grandfather to 8 grandchildren. To my family i am, "Papa Paul". My family is the joy of my life. Grandkids are the best! I a

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful for the principles of the Gospel and how it shapes my life. I feel that my belief in Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ and my personal relationship with them is the most important thing in my life. Having a living prophet on the earth today to receive their direction and to guide and direct Christ's church is the same principle and pattern of how Heavenly Father has taught his children here on earth since the beginning of time. I believe in that simple yet profound principle and am grateful to have a testimony of the Prophet who guides the church today. It is my hope and prayer that all people can learn of the restored Gospel on the earth today and participate in the joy and happiness which it brings.

How I live my faith

In spite of my heavy overseas travel, i have continued to be fully active and engaged in my church involvement for our local congregation and larger church group. I have served as the Bishop, the Ward Mission Leader, the Men's adult Group Leader, the Young Men's President and various responsibilities as a Scout Leader. I have also been a regular substitute Early Morning Seminary Teacher. I have also been very active in coaching my kids sports teams. I managed both son's Little League Teams for 12 years. I also coached Girls Softball Teams and both boys and girls soccer teams for each of the kids when they were younger. I also served on the High School Soccer and Choir Booster Clubs as the Treasurer. As a family, we enjoy water skiing, snow skiing and all types of sports. Golf is a part time passion.
