Faculty Profile

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.
