Philosophy with minors in Economics and Mandarin

Taylor is a sophomore from Tucson, AZ majoring in Philosophy with minors in Economics and Mandarin. During his time at the UA he has enjoyed serving as a summer camp counselor with Camp Wildcat, a student run non-profit that take local elementary school children on free camping trips around AZ, and being a student DJ with KAMP student radio. Both experiences have been incredibly meaningful to him. Camp Wildcat has given him the opportunity to serve as a leader for local kids and see the first-hand impact of mentorship, while KAMP has helped him meet new people while sharing his love of music with a wider audience. In his spare time, Taylor loves to cook and one of his dreams is to become a chef because he loves every single aspect of the cooking experience.
