Why I came to Taylor:
The undergraduate years of study are a transforming time period for most people. A critical component of this process is faculty-student interaction. This interaction is often greater and amplified at places like Taylor University and was a significant part of my own undergraduate experience. A major reason I decided to pursue a career at Taylor was to continue to participate in this faculty-student interaction and transformation process.
Using power tools to fix my house.
Working outside (landscaping, gardening, fixing the deck, etc.)
Model railroading and trains (though I have not done this in a while).
Guitar -- I would really like to construct my own acoustic guitar. Currently, I am accumulating tools to do this. So far, I have a nice pair of wood chisels. I have also played trumpet in the past.
