About Taylor

Taylor is a freelance writer, market editor, stylist and blogger living and working in New York City. She covers a range of lifestyle topics including fashion, menswear, travel, dating, and pop culture.

Her professional career has been grounded in the digital space—she began her career in New York as an editorial intern for Elle.com. From there she has served as Senior Editor, Fashion Editor, and a Menswear Editor for a variety of online publications.

In 2015 she transitioned into her most exciting role yet: freelance writer, editor and most recently, stylist. Her clients include Teen Vogue digital, CBS Watch! magazine, About.com, Style Girlfriend and The Today Show

When she's not writing or blogging, Taylor loves spending time in Sun Valley, Idaho with her family, exploring the East Coast with friends and looking for love in all the wrong places. She prefers and Old Fashioned over a Manhattan and would eat the spaghetti al limone at Supper every day if she could.

Writing & Styling Work

In December 2015, Taylor became the Women's Fashion Expert for About.com. In this role she creates informative, creative and helpful style stories that provide women with an accessible and realistic perspective on dressing and feeling good every day. She also updates old, dated and inaccurate past stories to maintain the health and accuracy of about.com's style content.

Taylor is a frequent contributor to Teen Vogue digital, creating complete fashion and accessory market stories as well as breaking news stories and celebrity style content. You can see her portfolio for Teen Vogue here.

Taylor has also styled two on-air segments for The Today Show, and you can watch the clips and read the accompanying articles here and here.
