My wife and I have been married for twenty-two years now, and have three children, Neil (born in August 2001), Edwin (born in January 2004), and Delphine (born June 2006).
After doing a year and a half at BYU (some of it virtual due to COVID-19) Neil is now serving in the Morristown, New Jersey mission, Korean-speaking. He is one of only four Elders serving among the Korean community there. Edwin is heading into his senior year of high school and is on the robotics team. Delphine has a genetic condition called Rett syndrome, which presents a lot of challenges. In addition to severe developmental delays she has seizures, which medication is not completely able to control. We are grateful that we were blessed with her, and we take joy in working with her and seeing her progress.
I still work at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory supporting the NIF directorate. I am the Administrative Group Lead for the Information Technology Group, and work on the Optics Inspection team, writing software to analyze the optical systems to verify their overall condition and health.
If any friends from the Mission are ever in our area (East Bay/Oakland) please get in touch! We'd love to see you.
I hold an Extra class Amateur Radio license, callsign AE6IQ. I work mostly CW (Morse Code). I am sometimes on 40 meters during evenings.
