    Why I Came to Taylor

    I’m at Taylor because I want to help train and mentor excellent computer scientists and engineers who are also dedicated followers of Christ.  In addition, as a member of the Center for Missions Computing, I want to leverage the intellectual horsepower and spiritual maturity of the students at Taylor to help solve practical computing problems for the global mission community.
