Why I love teaching at Taylor:

First, our students are part of what makes Taylor so great. Second, Cornelius Plantinga posited, “learning is. . . a spiritual calling: properly done, it attaches us to God,” – I get to facilitate that here!


Advice to incoming students:

Be open to new experiences but don’t get over-extended. Have boundaries.
Your learning belongs to you: make it happen and transfer everything you learn to other contexts!


Hobbies:

Hanging out with my family, playing games, reading, walking, biking, cooking, hosting friends.
