I retired from Church employment of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2013 after thirty-seven years of working mostly in information technology management. I received both a BA and MPA from BYU. In addition to serving this part-time mission, I am also serving as the patriarch in our stake. My wife is our genealogist and its been my privilege to learn much from her. She introduced me to this mission and I greatly enjoy the opportunity to serve in this way.
