I am an 19 year-old graduate of Troy High School Fullerton, CA, where I have lived all my life. I started genealogy when I turned 15, when my grandfather introduced it to me. I am currently preparing to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church in the St. Louis, Missouri mission. I received my Associates degree in History from Fullerton College in May 2009. My Boy Scout Eagle Project was a Family History Jamboree for beginners. I am the first recipient of the APG Young Professionals Scholarship. I received the FGS Youth Award at the 2008 Conference in Philadelphia.
I am currently the Web Manager for the Youth Genealogists Association.
