Before taking on the lifelong journey as a learning designer and technologist – I did two meaningful things with my life.
- Served in the Marine Corps
- Served as a 2 year full-time missionary with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I learned several valuable lessons, one of the most important being that leadership must be rooted in service.
