Before Jared left on his mission we were able to get a great family picture taken. Derek Smith, who was in our Ward, and was also the photography teacher for Jordan and Sarah took the pictures up Settlement Canyon. We were so grateful to have him take the pictures because he and his family were in the process of moving to St. George. We finally decided on a picture and had it enlarged. We thought we were getting a 16x20 and ended up with a 24x36. We liked the size so much for the room, we just went and bought a larger frame. Next time we have a family portrait taken, we will have to go to St. George.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
