Taylor is also a non-stop nerd, tinkering in software development, virtual reality, electronics by creating homebrew projects that go on to create business and personal opportunities. Instead of hyper-focusing on one specfic task that he can repeat and repeat for one organization or another in the same industry, he has spent much time learning deeply about the mechanics, artistry, relationships, and connections in the film/television, IT, and energy industries. With company projects and in his free time, he continues to improve and hone his front end development, Linux, python programming, infosec and cloud server computing skills.
He is currently developing a "VR flying machine" with friends, and more details will be posted as this projects as this project starts to leave the planning phase and enters the physical build.
