While growing up in rural Southern Oregon, Mark Taylor
developed a passion for the outdoors while he and his younger brother tagged along with their father on fishing,
hunting and camping adventures.
Graduating from Northwestern University in 1988, Taylor spent four years as an officer in the U.S. Navy based
in Norfolk before moving into journalism.
After five years writing about the military for a Norfolk-based publishing company, he became the outdoors
editor at The Roanoke Times in 1998. He lives in Roanoke with his wife and twin daughters.
