Yes. Where to start? I majored in History at the University of Utah, and also had a Minor in English. I love the arts. My wife and I continue to get season tickets to see plays and musicals. I have been touched by poetry, books, art, music, and plays. I have also been touched by the diverse cultures that add so much strength and beauty to our community. These things help us understand who we are and it also adds wonder to life.
