His initial creative outlets growing up were building Legos, tinkering with electronics, drawing, writing and singing music. He played the alto saxophone in middle school and acoustic guitar from high school until today. He enjoyed telling stories through creative lyrics and short stories.

As Taylor graduated high school, a fascination with video game and computer program development peaked. Although he pursued computer programming in high school and competed at a state level in C++ programming for Business Professionals of America. He then packed his bags and moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In 2005, Taylor attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a major in Game Art & Design. It wasn't long into the program, he sparked yet another old fascination with video and film while taking a video editing class. Story-telling and presentation became a strong point while pursuing his degree. While wrapping up projects for graduation in 2009, a new vision was beginning to take mold.

With his earliest experience shooting video on VHS as a kid with his dad's camera, Taylor began anew, producing his first full length movie using a Hi-8 camera and good friends in 2006. In 2007, Taylor and his friend made a second full length movie on standard digital video. Taylor soon discovered his knack for film making as he filmed his first wedding production in high definition in 2008.
