Winslow Taft's skills and credentials in the design field (a design degree from Samford University and a post-grad teaching gig there, thankyouverymuch) came as a great relief to the mental_floss co-founders, seeing that the magazine's editor hired him based solely on her obsession with this full name, Cyrus Winslow Taft, Jr. ("It just sounds so dreamy," she kept saying.) Outside of work, Taft's hobbies include rock climbing, playing Norm Abram to his bachelor pad (which he insists the staff refer to as "The Ski Lodge"), working on other work, working on more work, and trying to make excuses to stop working. While at work, Taft's hobbies include interjecting "your mom" into responses whenever possible, making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and perfecting the art of making fun of his editor's toe-thumbs.
(p.s. YES, he is related to the president, and NO, he hasn't been stuck in the bathtub)
