Hi, Everyone! My name's Taylor.
Yes, that Taylor...Taylor Campbell from Solomon's Compass.
I've been in the Coast Guard for 17 years and am a graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. As of today I'm a full commander, but in a couple of months, I'll be a captain.
I always knew I'd be a four-striper one day. My mother still thinks I'm wasting my time - that I could and should have found Mr. Corporation and have a huge house, a country club membership, and a closet filled with designer clothing. My mother has been out of touch for as long as I can remember.
Now Uncle Randy...he would be proud of my accomplishments. I wish he was still around. Some days I think his spirit still is because I can feel his presence.
So besides the Coast Guard, my life was pretty uneventful until SOLOMON'S COMPASS came along. And Jake Solomon. Not much has been the same since.
Carol asked me to tell you three things I like, and one that I don't. I like smoked brisket, the ocean, and Snow White. I don't like being told not to do something. I don't like that at all.
So I guess that's it.
Hope to meet a lot of you here today.
