Semper Tri 2018
Eager to get back in shape, I signed up for the Semper Tri Triathalon at Camp Pendleton. I started training about two months before the race began, running with my three kids, two in the stroller and one on his balance bike, and spending lots of time at the community swimming pool. My objective for this race was just to finish, and I succeeded! I finished the race in 2:07. It was a 500 meter swim, 30K bike ride, and 5k run.
Santa Clara University School of Law
family, update, education
Cate put law school on hold so I could start my career and so we could start our family. Now she's enrolled in Santa Clara Law School, right in the heart of Silicon Valley. She loves her classmates and the challenge of law school, and our whole family has loved living near campus.
We live in San Diego
With a new startup growing and looking forward to living closer to family, we moved to San Diego. We made some wonderful friends and have discovered date night as we perma-hire a babysitter every Friday night.
After several months of moonlighting with a classmate from highschool on a fun side project call ShopTheRoe.com, the company exploded. I put all my other ventures on hold and joined up full-time. Super excited for the Directangular adventure that's about to begin!

While getting some big data sets for Scott and Dr. Bob to work with for Analyze Corp's big data product, I spent some time working with a good friend to launch List Shack - Unlimited marketing lists for $50 per month.

DC we're here!
family, work, update
My first permanent position with Raytheon Technical Services division brought us to the nation's capital for the opportunity to take on some overseas projects in Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United Kingdom. Georgetown Cupcakes was our favorite place to take friends and family visiting from out of town.
Landed in Boston

We had the choice to move to San Diego or Boston, and we decided to go Boston! We love it here and have found some wonderful friends and some amazing mentors.
Working in Los Angeles
After BYU, I joined Raytheon, a Fortune 100 company in aerospace and defense, and was offered a position in their Contracts Leadership Development Program. They liked that I was comfortable working with attorneys and I liked that I could work with every other part of the business in preparation for starting my own company one day.
Why men wear womens' jeans
Why would anyone do something unpopular or controversial? This question entered my thoughts the first time I saw a man wearing skin-tight, women's flare jeans. The curiousity turned into an Honors' Thesis written under the advisement of Ray Christensen, PHD.
After just two and a half years, I'm done with my undergraduate degree in political science at BYU. What a great experience studying here has been. Now to just figure out how to make some money...
Working in the Scottish Parliament
I was burned out from BYU and in desperate need of a change of scenery. I couldn't have found a better place to work than the Scottish Parliament.
Missionary in Costa Rica
I spent two years serving as a missionary for the Mormon church in Costa Rica. My service changed the trajectory of my life and the lives of many of the people that I met. Pura Vida!
Mountain Crest High School
Loved High School, particularly playing football and wrestling, but the one thing I remember most was how much I was looking forward to the future.
