Taylor Kern is a senior at Normal Community High School and forth-year member of the NCHS band. This is Taylor's first year as a staff reporter for the Inkspot. I am interested in working in the world of film as a cinematographer and producer. I am most comfortable when I am traveling in long car rides while listening to my chill playlist on Spotify. I'd would have really liked to meet Steve Jobs because he was a genius and I have been infatuated with him since I saw one of his Apple talks as a kid.
