Im a laid back guy who enjoys spending time with friends and meeting new people. I would definitely describe myself as outgoing, friendly, and one who enjoys sharing in great conversation. Although I don't get to see them as often as I would like, my family means a lot to me.
I have a strong testimony of the church and the truthfulness and helpfulness of the gospel in my life. It has been, by far, the biggest help towards my outlook on a positive life and perspective on obstacles and trials. Going on a mission to the Philippines was a great opportunity for me to solidify my testimony, and learn invaluable life skills. I still use what I learned those two years every day, whether it be in speaking Tagalog with a friend or stranger, using gospel knowledge or just incorporating something I learned about myself during that time.
I really enjoy playing and watching sports, and being active outdoors. Camping, hiking and swimming are some of my favorite things to do in the warmer months. Soccer is one of my favorite hobbies. I love pretty much all sports... playing, watching live, and on tv. I played soccer along with a lot of other sports growing up. I got into competitive swimming, cross country, gymnastics, baseball, golf, tennis, sailing, surfing, skateboarding, wakeboarding, and climbing to name a few lol. Year round swimming and soccer become my full time passion by the time I hit high school. Eventually soccer took over all others. I really loved (love) to play, and over time I became pretty decent. It gave me plenty of scholarship opportunities to college. I played for my college before and after my mission. Although I am older, slower, and not quite as sharp, I still love to play locally in adult indoor and outdoor leagues. I also enjoy following the professional game here and overseas.
A perfect night for me is getting my friends together and cooking a nice dinner for everyone where we have the chance to talk, and have a great time together. SPOILER ALERT))) I'm a pretty dang good cook. I am a fan of staying in and watching movies and TV shows, or playing games. I also definitely enjoy a fun night out on the town. Going out dancing, shopping, to a show or to the movies, or just out to try a great restaurant. I enjoy great art, and those who have the creativity and ability to create it in all its amazing forms. Variety is the spice of life. I have learned when life is spent doing quality things you love, with those you love, it doesn't get any better than that!
