  • Description

    Hello! My name is Taylor. I live and grew up in California, beautiful Northern California being my home. I've always felt the momentum to travel and this force has led me on escapades around my own country, to Japan, and Costa Rica. I find traveling to be a genuine and adventurous way to grow and wish to pursue the challenges awaiting and expose myself to different cultures and all ways of life.
    Outside of travel, I enjoy being in the outdoors hiking or backpacking most- but I dabble in kayaking, rock climbing, and surfing. My current infatuation is diving, which I've never officially tried but am aiming to in the near future. When I'm not moving I love to draw, paint, watch movies and read.
    I'm open and always wanting to expand on/add to my current skillset. I really wish to be helpful to you and share our cultures!
