Meet the Flooring Team at Paradigm Interiors

Don Taylor

Don Taylor
Owner/Business Manager

Don was born in Lincoln, Nebraska but spent most of his childhood in Alliance. Until 2001, Don worked in advertising for Hill Holiday’s interactive department in New York City when disaster struck. Multiple mergers and the events on September 11th diminished the allure of a big city marketing job. He traded the skyscrapers for mountains and moved to Colorado without a job. He quickly realized Denver’s marketing scene didn’t compare to Madison Avenue. The economy dipped and careers in marketing quickly began to fade away. At a wedding reception, mutual friends connected Don and Matt. The rest is history.

Matt Budler

Matt Budler

Matt’s a bio-psych major with a master degree in counseling from Colorado State turned master tiler. Matt didn’t go to Nebraska Wesleyan for undergrad to work with his hands like one might expect of someone in the flooring industry. Yet a few years into family counseling Matt worked with a friend on some tile. He loved the work and found a full-time job as a tiling subcontractor. A couple years later he met Don.
