What is the most enjoyable part of your job?
There is this strange one-two punch sensation I feel every time I go to work. It starts when I see everyone in the store working before they have seen me; it gets me really excited to work. The second blow happens when all of my coworkers greet me as I walk in because it causes my heart to swell. I work with some incredible people.
What are your interests outside of work?
Improv comedy, biking, and ice cream sandwiches.
What is the "Taylor factor"?
Having many nicknames (Tator, Tea Time, Taylor Game, Taylor Street, Trailer, Trailer Street, Taye Diggs, T money…), Hawaiian shirts, and living really close to the store.
What is your favorite work-related memory?
Once I thought I saw a fly about to land on a pizza I was making so I swatted at it. I swung too close to the pizza and knocked it off the paddle. As it turns out there was no fly, just a little spec on my glasses.
Any mantras you live by?
"Just imagine how happy you'd be if you lost everything you have right now… and then got it all back." (Bertrand Russell) I like that quote because it helps me appreciate what I have already which helps me let go of stress.
