Hi everyone, I'm Taylor! I'm originally from Pittsford, NY, a suburb of Rochester: home of the Geva Theatre Center, Wegmans (the most awesome grocery store EVER) and the Garbage Plate (definitely not found at Wegmans).
I started taking piano lessons in the first grade (thanks Mom and Dad), and throughout the years I added trombone, acoustic guitar and electric bass to my instrument arsenal. As long as I can remember I've wanted to be a performer, and that included being in every show and music activity possible in middle school and high school. I even helped form my school's a cappella group my senior year.
I attended the University at Buffalo, where I got some incredible training from some fantastic teachers including Greg Natale, Keith Ersing, Tracy Navarro and Tony-nominee Stephen McKinley Henderson. Some great guest Director/Choreographers I've worked with include Gary John LaRosa, Dj Salisbury, Terry Berliner and Josh Walden. At UB I had the opportunity to perform some incredible roles like Doody in "Grease", Riff Raff in "The Rocky Horror Show", and Jean Valjean in "Les Miserables". I graduated in 2014 with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre.
After moving to NYC that summer, I started a YouTube Channel and a music/video production company: TIG Music. Shortly after I began to post my arrangements online, while also continuing to audition. I got my first professional acting job that fall, and my very first national tour in the summer of 2015!
