Radio Producer/ Back-Up Host

Taylor graduated from Georgia State University in 2015 with B.A in Journalism and a concentration in Telecommunications. He interned with On Second Thought during his Senior spring semester and immediately fell in love with the team and the GPB working environment (but mostly the t-shirts).

Taylor also worked as a freelance sports reporter for the Forsyth County News and a sports contributor for the growing southern magazine "The Kitchen Drawer." When he's not listening to Rush or groaning at the local teams, he can be found petting his cat "Mr. Jorge" or watching Netflix.

And for transgender people living in the South, the statistics are even more grim.

According to the Human Right’s Campaign, 60 percent of violent incidents against transgender people happen in the South.

That includes four deaths this year in Georgia.
