Director of Community Relations
Taylor brings a diverse skill set to Redpoint Center’s team, hailing from a background in the non-profit sector, marketing/brand development, and in behavioral health intervention.
Taylor’s professional pursuits were born out of a sincere desire to help marginalized groups and at-risk populations and began seeking out a context in which he could effectively do that. So, in his early 20s Taylor joined a Honolulu based non-profit, that used surfing as a way bring a positive force into difficult situations. He eventually assumed a director’s position for the largest food-distribution program in the state that fed over 4,000 families/week. During this time Taylor also led teams of young adults through Southeast Asia, teaching the local-impoverished community how to surf, providing equipment and basic medical treatments.
Since his introduction to the behavioral health and substance abuse treatment field, Taylor has continued to grow and remain an active member of the recovery community. He has consulted with a handful of startup programs and served as the Director of Marketing and Community Relations for two programs in California.
Along with his roles in marketing and program development, for the last 3 years, Taylor has been apprenticing under one of the most highly sought-after interventionists in the country and has been formally trained and certified in multiple modalities of intervention; maintaining and growing in his ability to help guide people to a path to recovery.
