Taylor Cortez As Exclusive Cover Story – June 2023
How do you introduce yourself?
Taylor Cortez: My name is Taylor Cortez, I am a passionate designer with an interest in the integration of innovative design solutions within the built environment. I have a background in Construction, having worked within my families’ business specialising in Carpentry for high-end residential builds. It is this exposure to construction that has driven my passion to pursue a career in the Architecture and Design industry.
Childhood to Adulthood – How was your transition from childhood to adulthood and what are the bad and good things you remember?
Taylor Cortez: Like a lot of people, my transition to adulthood was volatile at best. Being presented with so many options for career paths and trying to see the relevance in what was being taught at school was tedious to say the least. It wasn’t until my final few years of high school that I began to see a clear path moving forward. I was fortunate enough to be selected for an Indigenous Australian Engineering program that gave me insight into the possibilities that lay before me and ultimately lead me down a path of both science and design. So as challenging as it seemed at the time I think one must embrace the journey to allow a natural transition moving forward.
