My name is Michael, although I usually go by Gus. I'm a fairly easy going person, I get along with most people and I try to enjoy whatever life throws at me. That's just part of how you have be in the military. I recently retired from the Air Force after 10 years of service and now I'm going to school full time. I'm originally from Michigan and it looks like I'll be in Utah for a little while.
I joined the church in 2011 when I was living in Colorado Springs and then spent the next two years in Virginia so I consider myself more of a Virginia Mormon. I definitely prefer being a Mormon outside of Utah but I had to see what it was like and make my pilgrimage. Plus there are so many phenomenal institute teachers here. Religion has always been a big part of my life even when I was protestant and had a hard time believing what was being taught. I love learning about religion in general, I think it helps me to better understand people.
I like to experience new things and meet new people, although I'm not the most outgoing person, I enjoy the challenge.
