Taylor grew up in the suburbs of Chicago in a classic tale of neighborhood kids skating around the block, hopping curbs, and kicking back in cul-de-sacs. Taylor traded his suburban roots in for Echo Park in Los Angeles where skateboards and works at Lady White Co. (a rad little fashion tee shirt company) on the weekends. Taylor is one of the most stylish guys we know and somehow makes everything look easy.
Q: Got any cool scars?
A: Irish mints, a brand called Foxes, in particular. When I was 10 I accidentally swallowed the mint and I started choking. Lips started to turn blue, the whole nine. Luckily my dad gave me the Heimlich and saved my life. FOREVER scarred on those blue wrapped clear mints.
