Pete Codella - March 2017I’m a fortunate husband and proud father.

I work in the field of public relations, marketing and integrated communications. I’m employed as the director of marketing and communications in the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. I have an MBA from the University of Utah, a BA from Brigham Young University and have been Accredited in Public Relations (APR) since 2005.

I enjoy music and musical theater, woodworking and home improvement projects, spending time outdoors and with the family.

Feel free to connect with me on just about any social media platform.

About Just Pete

This is my personal blog (since 2009), which I’ve titled Just Pete, and it replaces my older family blog.

Here I chronicle my family’s activities, comment on my kids’ escapades, provide occasional reviews and my thoughts on current affairs.

I welcome your comments and considerate participation.

From 2011 to 2014 I contributed to the Modern Mormon Men blog. You can read my posts on MMM here.

About LDS High Council Talks

From March 2014 to May 2018, I served as a member of the high council in the South Jordan Utah River Ridge Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I posted my sacrament meeting talks as part of the LDS high council talks category on this blog.
