Welcome to storybuilding!
My name is Tatum Taylor, and I am a writer and preservationist. I spent my first eighteen years in the same red brick house in Houston, Texas, an experience which instilled in me a guiding sense of place. Afterward, I attended Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, Virginia, including an architecture-filled year in Reading, UK. In 2009, I received an honors degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing, and for the next year, I worked as an education coordinator at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, DC. This work further fostered in me a passion for communicating untold stories, which I now aim to apply in preserving the heritage contained in our built environment. In 2012, I graduated with a master’s degree in Historic Preservation from Columbia University, where I wrote my thesis on the challenges of interpreting sites related to underdocumented communities. I am currently living in Toronto and working as a planner at a heritage architecture firm.
