Taylor Turner | Culture & Lifestyle Columnist
Taylor is an eclectic guy: nighttime may consist of tuxedos and waltzes followed by a day of dirt bikes, trucks, and country music. Either way he enjoys it because it usually consists of friends who make everything more fun. A good book and cup of coffee are always welcome items on a rainy day; and a warm, sunny day is the cue to break out the fly rod, water ski, and road bike. As a homeschool graduate and recent graduate from Thomas Edison State College, Taylor is now pursuing a financial certification while working at a top commercial real estate firm in Richmond, Virginia. Every year brings new surprises and presents many opportunities for learning and for that Taylor is thankful and eager to see what this next year brings.
