About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and have always enjoyed living near the mountains and being in nature.  In high school I was heavily involved with music and was in band and choir.  In band I played the trombone, Bb horn, French horn, baritone and oboe. I enjoy sports and was on the tennis team each year of high school. 

After graduating from high school I served a mission in Taiwan for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  There I learned to love Asian culture, Asian food and the Chinese language.  I have a great love for the people I was able to meet there. 

Upon returning from my mission I went to school at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.  While studying there, I spent a few years deciding between different passions I had and trying to figure out what to major in.  For a couple years I studied industrial design because of my passion for drawing and design, and also my childhood dream of being an inventor.  After spending a couple years in that program I decided that even though I enjoyed what I was doing, I wanted to look to do something where I could be outside more, so I majored in landscape management.  That has been great for me and has allowed me to work in Oregon and Alaska.

Since graduating from BYU, I have moved to Alaska to do landscaping.  I have fallen in love with the beauty and landscapes that Alaska has to offer.  It is perfect for someone like me who loves being outside as much as possible to hike, cross country ski and take pictures. 

I enjoy working, but when I am not working I want to be doing something outside.  My favorite sport is Ultimate Frisbee.  I also played tennis throughout high school.  On weekends, I try to hike, snowshoe, camp or go cross country skiing (or sometimes a combination of those things).

Besides being outside, I love music and art.  Much of the art I have done can be seen in the Portfolio section of this website.
