I grew up in a large family in Southern California. I am the second oldest in a family of seven children. I served a mission for our church to Mazatlan, Mexico, and moved to Utah shortly after my mission. After I finished law school I began my career as a criminal prosecutor. I have worked with and served many individuals in our church; I especially enjoyed working with children in cub scouts and teaching the young children music. I enjoy scuba diving, cycling, cooking, plays/musicals, and camping. I hope to complete a triathlon someday.
