David Taylor-Tumilty

Senior Admissions Counselor

Originally from Northern Ireland, David has a long-standing interest in both globally-minded education and international travel and has been lugging his suitcases all over the world for the past two decades. Before moving to New York, David lived across various parts of Europe and then Japan, where he worked within local government for several years. After leaving Japan in 2008, he began his career in higher education working as an International Officer based in London, specializing in international student recruitment, study abroad and exchange, and partnership development. David still loves to travel to “off the beaten track” destinations, enjoys a good book, and listening to the kinds of music people often regret buying shortly after the point of purchase.
