Why I Came to Taylor

Taylor University is a great place to be! I look fondly on my undergraduate days at Taylor as a wonderful time of spiritual, cognitive, and personal growth. My hope and prayer is that my time here as a faculty member will allow me to contribute to the lives of current and future students and help provide guidance and support as they experience this most pivotal time of life.


In addition to spending time with his wife and 4 children, Ben enjoys traveling, running, and playing drums.
