My wife and I were married Sept. 1996. We have 4 children. They are Autumn (10), Noah (7), Hailey (4) and Jacob (3). We lived in southern California for about nine years, during which time I worked at Boeing on the Delta Rocket Program. The highlight of that time at Boeing was as project manager of the third stage on the New Horizons Program (first mission to Pluto, launched 1/19/06). It was a very cool experience. In August 2006 there were some changes going on at work and at the end of it all we were led to Tucson, AZ where I work for Raytheon. I never would have pictured myself in Arizona, but it's been a great change. I go to Japan about 4 times a year with work. MHI is our partner in a missile defense project. The trips are hard work and long hours, but it's still cool to go back there and speak the language, eat the food and visit with people.
I love the gospel and am so thankful for the joy it gives me, as well as the purpose in life. I've worked quite a bit with the youth, and am currently the scoutmaster and have fun going camping, etc. All of my callings have been a blessing. I still think of my mission - I can't believe I've been home 16 years! I love hearing from old mission buddies, so drop a line.
