Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in northern Michigan and live in North Carolina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started working for manufacturing company right after graduating from Brigham Young university 4 years ago and have lived in the Cleveland area, Columbia SC, Lenoir NC and now Greensboro NC while working as as an engineer. I served a mission in S Korea from '02-'04. I also spent a total of 7 months in China and Vietnam as an intern and on a study abroad. I frequently travel for work and have been back to Korea twice. Originally from northern Michigan, I have a beautiful wife of 2 years with a boy on the way in July. I love the outdoors and specifically enjoy rock climbing, mountain/road biking, canyoneering, kayaking and snowboarding. Lately, however, I've been spending most of my free time studying for an MBA degree from Indiana University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am second generation Mormon from a small town in northern Michigan where few of my peers shared my beliefs. When I was in high school, I had to make some major decisions in my life. I decided that if the Book of Mormon is true, then I needed to go on a mission, so I prayed about it and came to know it is true by the feelings I had while praying.

How I live my faith

It is important to me to read the Book of Mormon every day and I do so everyday with my wife. I participate in weekly church meetings by occasionally teaching (as a sub) and commenting in lessons. I have been asked to help out the local full time missionaries when they need help.
