Originally from Mason City, Iowa, Tait Moline settled in Phoenix, Arizona, to be with his husband, Craig, and enjoy the temperate winter climate while also enduring the (dry!) summer heat. A member of Actor’s Equity Association, Tait has performed with Rosie O’Donnell, John O’Hurley, and Colin Powell, worked extensively for the Walt Disney Company, Busch Gardens, and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and appeared in television and film with Tiger Woods, Amanda Bynes, Wayne Brady, and Hulk Hogan. Currently encouraging high school students to live their best lives by teaching English Language Arts for the Deer Valley Unified School District, Tait graduated from Millikin University and enjoys skiing, theater, and copious amounts of pizza. He is proud to serve our diverse Community as a member of the Phoenix Pride Board as well as serving as the the Immediate Past President of Melrose Toastmasters, Arizona’s first LGBTQ+ and friends Toastmasters club.
