Hi I'm Darren

I'm a husband, a father, an engineering manager & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I manage a mechanical engineering team and All-in-one printer programs at Hewlett-Packard in San Diego. I enjoy most water and land sports as well as Summer and Winter outdoor activities. I love my wife, children and their spouses. They are some of the best people I know. I also appreciate the opportunity to serve with the wonderful members of the Mormon church in my community.

Why I am a Mormon

While I have grown up in the Mormon faith I have not taken it for granted. I have found great satisfaction studying the principles of the gospel to understand their truths. Those truths explain how all the pieces of life's puzzle fit together with a clarity and assurance that no other information or organization can match. Faithfully living the doctrines of the church has brought an intense feeling of happiness and confidence that my life is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I am also deeply humbled by all that the Savior has done to redeem me. It is so comforting to know that my wife, family and I can return to be in Their presence.

How I live my faith

Through Scouting and church I get many opportunities to serve in the community. I love that! Eagle scout projects have benefitted schools, parks and museums. Through church groups like "Mormon Helping Hands" I have helped the victims of California wildfires. In my Mormon congregation I work mostly with the youth to help them establish firm foundations for their future. We go on high adventure outings, play sports, learn to cook, learn music, study the scriptures and offer service to anyone in need.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

God has sent prophets to guide his children throughout time. It only makes sense that he would continue to do so now. I have been blessed to live by the guidance of 5 prophets so far. Follow their counsel and you too will come to know that they speak what God directs. Show more Show less
