More about Taylor
I joined Blast…
Because I am a firm believer when it comes to surrounding yourself with the best people possible. Everyone at Blast is motivated to do the right thing, whether that be with our clients or for the team.
A cool part of my job is…
When working, I am able to create a report for a client that highlights an issue or insight that they were not expecting — whether that be highlighting a pain point that can be addressed to create a smoother user journey or an insight that helps shed light on their customers.
My consulting “philosophy” is…
Do the right thing, even if it’s hard. Difficult situations arise, and it can be tempting to take the easier road to solve those issues. I would rather do the right thing from the beginning rather than kick the can down the road and potentially cause a larger issue in the future.
It’s not on my resume, but…
I worked as a phone salesman through college selling custom printed yogurt cups and working with manufacturers in China to get them printed.
One of my first jobs was…
When I was 14, I worked at a small airplane engine company. My job was to go to their warehouses, organize parts by part number, and enter the inventory into an excel spreadsheet.
The most interesting place I’ve traveled is…
I’ve been to the “world’s largest” Jackalope museum, in Dubois Wyoming.
My hobbies include…
Riding bicycles, hiking, going on drives. Anything in the mountains is going to be fun.
A favorite quote of mine is…
“The shortest answer is doing the thing” – Ernest Hemingway
