Hello to everyone out there. I don't really know how to describe myself, and who would believe what I say anyway, right? Overall, I'm a fairly laid-back guy, but I definitely have my OCPD tendencies (or so I've been told :) ). I am a perfectionist in certain things, but thanks to grad school, I am learning everyday to become more flexible and just go with the flow. I grew up in northern Utah, went on a mission to eastern Europe, graduated from college and got a job in a hospital lab as a med tech. I recently started PA school in upstate NY and I'm probably supposed to say that I'm loving every minute of it...Truth be told, I am constantly stressed, constantly studying, and sleeping a little in between. I don't have very much free time anymore, but when I can't stand to look at another textbook, I like to relax with a good mystery book, movie, or just catch up on a tv show with which I've gotten behind. I really don't have much time for a social life now, but hopefully in the future that will change. When I'm not in school, I like to go camping, hiking, or hop in the car and go for a drive. I love spending my summer months up at Bear Lake, relaxing in the sun and playing on the water. I love my family and miss spending time with them, especially my nephews! I am grateful for the gospel, my family, my friends, and for the support they all give me during my ups and downs in this life. If you want to know more, just drop me a line!
