Why I Love Teaching At Taylor:

The community at Taylor is unique to anything I’ve experienced. The students are intelligent and inquisitive. At Taylor because of the interests of students there is a lot of opportunity to dialogue across a broad field, potentially covering topics such as tectonics and hypostasis in one conversation.


Advice to Incoming Students:

Dig in.


Hobbies:

My interests include, but are not limited to: contemporary and ancient art, architecture, myth, post-modern discourse, critical theory, philosophy, semiotics, gender theory, postcolonial critique, theosophy, theology, pop culture, running, gardening, cooking, and talking with pretty much anyone.
