I live in Mesa, Arizona and presently serve as a missionary at the Mesa Regional Family History Center (MRFHC) also known as the Mesa Large Multi-state Family History Center. I work with patrons and teach classes.

In 1979, I moved to Mesa from Scottsdale, Arizona. I have been employed as a trial attorney for the past 36 years but am now semi-retired. From 1982 to approximately 1993, I owned and operated an Apple computer store in Mesa. I also was part owner of a Macintosh software development company.

I have been involved in genealogical research for approximately 28 years, with most of my research in the U.S. and Denmark. I am presently a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).

I have been constantly involved in scanning family history documents, primarily from my family, for the past 15 years or so.

My Education

  • B.A. Spanish, University of Utah
