Tayo Basquiat

Graduate Student

Tayo and his cat Augie come from the northern plains of North Dakota. As an adventurer, trail runner, bikepacker, and scavenger, he is loving life in Laramie. Most recently an associate professor of philosophy at Bismarck State College, he sees creative writing as a path to wisdom and a life well-lived.  A fan of the personal essay and adventure writing, he lets his personal experiences and curiosity about the world guide him to stories that need telling.  Bats, coyotes, and turtles make him exceedingly happy.
