After graduating from Mt. Juliet High School, he began his collegiate baseball career when he was recruited by the Western Kentucky University Baseball program in the fall of 2009. Upon his fifth year at the University, he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at WKU.
In his first debut appearance, Taylor voiced original character Eyas Sinthorn for the D&D audio drama podcast, ChasmQuest. ChasmQuest, an original collaborative story, first released June 28th, 2018 with "ChasmQuest Beginnings" 1 & 2. ChasmQuest Episode 1 "The Theslaning (Premiere)" released the very next month on July 2, 2018.
Taylor later went on to host an originally written spin-off story of his own creation taking place in the same universe as the main ChasmQuest narrative. The spin-off, "Pirate's Pique," originally aired January 28, 2020 and co-starred fellow cast member and ChasmQuest writer Andrew Palmer with cast members and newcomers, Jena Altstatt and Micah Wright.
