My name is Taylor Summerlin and I'm a storyteller.
The reason I say storyteller is because I am passionate about telling stories no matter what medium.
I’m skilled in this field both visually and in literacy. I love the process of bringing a story to life so others can come along the adventure that was once just a vision within my imagination. I learned how to tell great tales by watching movies from Classic Hollywood and Disney animation (Classic and Renaissance). My hope is to continue to write novels, sketch storyboards, illustrate as well as write children's books, edit animatics, and produce more artworks. Not only is it a passion of mine to tell stories, but I also have many more tales that I’m just itching to share. I also like helping others flesh out their own original ideas. Just ask my friends and old classmates.
I’m also an old-soul; a melting pot of ethnicities/cultures; a fan of Renaissance art, pop-opera, animation, musicals, Disney, and old Hollywood Classics; loves dogs; a con and expos attendee; likes baseball; will take a burger and fries over sushi any day; and am, without a doubt, the biggest nerd/geek you will ever meet.
