Biography

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.

Hobbies

Sailing, cycling, reading, music (listening and vocal performance), and woodworking wannabe.
