Tayo Kaufman has been involved with Blue Rider for over 15 years. He grew up in the Southern Berkshires / Northwest Connecticut in the 1980s and has since settled back in the area in the early 2000’s to raise his family. He went to school at the University of Connecticut majoring in Business and Management Information Systems, and has been working in the software industry since.
He became involved with Blue Rider through his niece and nephew, who both grew up at the barn. Tayo became directly involved by volunteering at events and helping with sound and music over the years – and thus forming friendships and connections with so many people involved with Blue Rider.
Tayo joined the board to help support the mission and because of the haven and special place the Blue Rider represents in the world for so many people and animals. Tayo brings particular logistical and financial background which can help Blue Rider moving forward.
