About Tayler

I'm a 26-year-old rock climber, yogi, hiker, traveler and adventurer trying to find the balance between wanderlust and roots.

My first time leaving the USA, I journeyed to rural Nepal for an internship and to do research for my thesis. That experience turned my world upside down, awakening a bug that had me returning to Nepal and other parts of Asia several times over the next few years.

Finally, in 2017, I followed my dream of buying a one-way ticket to Thailand. I spent the following year and a half living, working and climbing in 9 different countries in Asia. I returned to the states in May 2019 to reunite with family and friends.

Now, I'm happy to have some stability in Portland, Oregon, where I aim to focus on building community, following my passions, and serving the world.
