Don Taylor


Don was born in Lincoln, but grew up in Alliance, Nebraska. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising from the University of Nebraska and then ventured to Poland to work in internet advertising. Don jumped at an opportunity to work for an interactive advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, but after 9/11, Don and his wife, Magda, chose to move west to Colorado. That’s where Don met Matt. They started tiling together and formed Paradigm Flooring in 2003 where Don’s focus has evolved towards business operations and development. In his spare time, you’ll find him trying to keep up with his four kids and dog as they camp, hunt and travel together.

Matt Budler


Matt was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University. He then earned his MA in Counseling from the Colorado State University and moved to Colorado to take advantage the great outdoors. Matt soon changed careers and became a successful tile subcontractor. A few years later, he met Don and with their strong, mid-west work ethic they built a reputation for quality tile work under the Paradigm Flooring name. Matt’s passion is to continue to bring in good people and help them grow professionally and personally. Matt oversaw Paradigm’s production for many years and now focuses on business relationships, quotes and overseeing daily operations. Matt and his wife Stef and three children live in Littleton and they enjoy good ole family fun with weekend getaways to the mountains, watching the kid’s sports and traveling.
