I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. Served a mission to the Colombia Cali Mission. Married my wife Shari in 1982 in the Washington D.C. temple. We have four children and fourteen grandchildren, all under the age of 8. Graduated from BYU. I coached football and taught math for many years at Snow College (1986-1991) and Ricks College (BYU Idaho, 1991-2001). I was the Director of the BYU Student Athlete Academic Center from 2001-2011. I was in High School Relations from 2011-2014. I was called as a Mission President to Guatemala from 2014-2017.
I enjoy hiking, geography, photography, working out, eating and serving.
