“You can’t just capture stories. You have to tell them.

 

+Taylor Hoffman

Project Manager

DREAMS HAVE NO PLACE STAYING INSIDE.

I’ll go anywhere for a story, but in spite of my wanderlust, it’s never that far before I run cleat first into a good one.  Stories are all around us, and if you open your eyes, it’s easy to find them and then use them to your advantage.

 

My favorite thing about my role at Wilderness Agency is that I don’t just get to tell stories, I also get to work directly with my clients to create storytelling machines that churn out content, capture experiences and convert customers.

 

I’m no stranger to a good fantasy, but at Wilderness Agency, I get to flex my creative athleticism in strategic nonfiction, finding the beauty and strategy in the everyday excitement around us to frame, spin and message organizations into successful communication strategies.

Historian by degree, project manager by trade and writer by passion.

I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 2010 with Bachelors Degrees in both Anthropology and History. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Public History from Wright State University in 2013. I am currently the general manager at The Oilerie Dayton located in the Greene. I am responsible for making sure our small, family-owned shop runs smoothly. I manage daily operations, inventory, our team and sales floor. I have many years of experience in research, writing and editing at a graduate, post-graduate and professional level. I am able to create professional documents, creative manuscripts, museum text panels, descriptive text and research-based material. My experience and abilities aided in my contribution to the Rotary of Dayton’s Centennial publication, 100 Years: Rotary Club Dayton. I was responsible for research, initial drafts and final edits. I have also developed skills in exhibit design, planning, research and installation; historical research, artifact preservation and conservation; archival processing; care for both three-dimensional and two-dimensional collections; documentary film research and production; Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Final Cut Pro 7; text panel drafting; historic preservation and site interpretation. My passion for reading and writing lends itself to the many hours of research I have done and will do in the future. I have developed many leadership skills throughout my career as a soccer player and NCAA Division I athlete. I continue to play weekly and let my experiences as a team participant and builder positively influence my life.
