Who is Taylor C. Bailey?

I'm an engineering manager at West Pharmaceutical Services, freelance videographer, and author of A Renaissance of Locks and The Acacia Records (still working on that one). I also love to rock climb, play softball, mountain bike, hunt, camp, and work on my house. This site is just a way to showcase what I'm working on as well as share some of my thoughts on various topics that interest me. Enjoy.

Reading List

Reading has always played a huge role in my life, and finding a good book is like striking gold! I keep a record of all the books I read and mark the favorites, just for you!

Automation & Authorship

Automation & Authorship is a show in the works where I bring on guests to talk engineering and writing. I'll include abbreviated show notes here with links to the podcast, as well as additional thoughts in the form of stand-alone articles. If you have something unique to say in either of these spaces, feel free to contact me about being a guest on the show!


Sometimes it's just nice to have a place to direct people for recommendations. See what entertainment, software, and products I recommend, for whatever that's worth to you.
