Background

I live in Provo, Utah and presently serve as a missionary at the BYU Family History Library. I work with patrons and teach classes. I also serve on the Board of Directors of the Utah Genealogical Association.

In 1979, I moved to Mesa from Scottsdale, Arizona. I was employed as a trial attorney for 39 years but am now fully retired. From 1982 to approximately 1993, I owned and operated an Apple computer store in Mesa. I also was part owner of a Macintosh software development company.

I have been involved in genealogical research for approximately 35 years, with most of my research in the U.S., England, and Denmark.

I have been constantly involved in scanning family history documents, primarily from my family, for the past 20 years or so.

Current Projects

I am very much involved in writing, most of which is either work or Blog related. You can read my current Blog posts on the following websites:
Genealogy's Star
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad...

I have been involved in photography since I was about 10 years old. You can see a huge selection of my photographs in current posts and older posts on the following website:

Walking Arizona

I was also been involved in a graphics design and website development company for over 30 years. The business is now run primarily by my wife and is called Bookmark Graphics.

My Education

  • B.A. Spanish, University of Utah
  • M.A. Linguistics, University of Utah
  • J.D. Law, Arizona State University

I have Arizona Community College Certificates in Spanish, Computer Information Systems and Law.

Other Involvement

I was involved with the Boy Scouts of America in some capacity or another for about 25 years or so.
