Connect With Taylor Ellison

Taylor Ellison is a born and raised Austinite and excited to join the We Are Austin team. After graduating from the University of Texas, Taylor moved to Washington, D.C. to join Teach for America. While in Washington, she taught 8th grade at KIPP WILL Academy. Returning to Austin to attend the LBJ School of Public Affairs, Taylor then worked as an entertainment reporter covering culture, entertainment, and lifestyle across the city. Happily back in her hometown, Taylor spends her days doing what she loves most, trying to help others enjoy a city that has brought her so much joy through the years.

While not at the studio, Taylor spends her time listening to live music and enjoying the array of eclectic restaurants and bars that make Austin so special. An ideal day for her is spending the afternoon at Barton Springs followed by a walk down South Congress, a pit stop for some chips and queso, and then some live music at the one and only Continental Club. If you`ve got questions about Austin or want recommendations for exploring the city straight from a local, give her a shout! Facebook, Twitter, or Email.

Taylor would love to hear from you.
