Taylor is thrilled to be engaging Toronto’s youth in drama and story-building at YPT. An actor from a young age, Taylor spent his early 20’s as a theatre director before moving into corporate project management. As an arts educator, Taylor believes in creating safer spaces where curiosity, imagination, questions and engagement are encouraged. Taylor holds an undergraduate degree from Ryerson University’s School of Performance and an MA from University of Toronto’s Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies. His time with the drama students is the highlight of his week.
