He interrupted his education to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Padova, Italy. On his return he married Kimberley Heuston in the Salt Lake Temple; they were later divorced.

He received an MBA from Stanford University in 1984 and went on to a successful career in Silicon Valley. There he met Renee Cardobes. He was the father of five children: Mark (Natalie) Sorenson, Jennifer Lynn Sorenson, Alexander (Emily) Sorenson, Andrew (Sarah) Sorenson, and Elissa Cardobes-Sorenson and seven grandchildren.
