Taylor has spent the majority of his life on the front range of Colorado. Growing up with this background, Taylor quickly turned hunting, fishing, and the outdoors into a passion. He spent 6 years guiding hunts all across the central United States and up into Canada. Having been born in the mountains of Montana and raised in Colorado, he quickly grew accustomed to this western lifestyle.
Taylor continued his time in Colorado by attending Colorado State University and pursuing a degree in Agricultural Business. As a student Taylor spent 3 years as the President of the Colorado State University Ducks Unlimited chapter where they made huge strides by becoming ranked in the top 3 collegiate chapters nationally. Spending a large part of his time on the road as a hunting guide, he also grew a lot of relationships with farmers and ranchers across the western United States. These relationships in return provided him with an invaluable teaching of land and the very knowledge that he has to this day.
After graduating from Colorado State University with his degree in Agricultural Business, Taylor has now found a career path in farm, ranch, and recreational real estate that combines his love for the outdoors and his vast knowledge of real estate. With experience in all aspects of hunting, fishing, and the outdoors, he is confident and believes that he has an edge when evaluating quality land or water around the country. Taylor is passionate and committed to assisting his clients in the buying or selling of land and consulting in range and wildlife habitat management.
