Why I Came to Taylor:

As I worked through the decision to leave a successful career, God's hand was smoothing the way at every step.  Right as I was finishing graduate school, a position at Taylor was posted.  Taylor had provided me with  an excellent foundation for my career and now God has blessed me with an opportunity to give back.

Advice to Incoming Students:

When I started graduate school, one of my wise professors told me that education is a gift to yourself.  He stated we should take advantage of every opportunity to learn as much as possible.  My advice for freshmen would be similar.  Your time at Taylor will be short.  Seek to take advantage of every opportunity to focus on spiritual and intellectual development of the gifts and talents that God has given you.


My hobbies include reading, travel, sports and photography.  I also enjoy working with the youth in my church and participating in mission projects.  I am passionate about making an impact on social issues such as educational and poverty.
